2010 ArtSpace/Lima Photography Club




Eligibility =

            Adults 18 years of age and older are eligible to enter.  Our Youth Division is for those 17 years and younger by the Open House date.  Youth Division has its own awards. There is no geographical limit in either division.

            ‘No names on the front of the photo/mat’ – a tape will be applied over the name.  Winners of the Lima News Contest cannot submit their photos into the Photography Club contest.


Judges =

             Michael Ayres of Lima is WPPI's International Photographer of the year.  He is an award-winning wedding photographer and  has lectured to more than 40,000 photographers across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe.  Ken Katowick has been a photographer since 1963.  In 1965, he attended the Famous Photography School.  He specializes in landscape, pet, aviation, astronomy, and automotive photography.


Framing and Size Requirement =

United Inches =

            This is a way to measure your photograph.  Add one long edge with one short edge to equal the United Inches.  Therefore an 8 X 12 photograph equals 20 United Inches {UI}.  This applies to the visible photograph.


D-rings =

            These are round, semi-round, D-shaped or Triangle shaped metal attachments at the back of the frame to allow for hanging from a wall.  You cannot submit these frames with a wire attached between them.  They come apart and can let the photo fall from the wall.  Only screw eyes or mirror attachments that are attach to the wooden or metal frame itself will be allowed.

            Unstable frames will also be excluded. If you have any questions, please ask at Registration before you submit your photos.  We will not have any hardware available.


Registration =

Inclement weather

            If Registration has to be cancelled on one of the weekend days, arrangements will be made for Registration to continue until Monday, Dec.14, 2009 from 9 am to 2 pm.  In extreme conditions, alternate dates will be announced on the website and on the emergency phone numbers 419 -999-1676 or 419-224-4414.  Judging and final date of acceptance may also be adjusted.


Notification of Exhibit results =

            All notifications will go out to you by mail via the self-addressed stamped envelop 2 days after judging is complete.  Please do not call ArtSpace.


E-mail =

            We do not keep your e-mail address nor do we give it to anyone else.  We only use it to notify you if you won a first place/special award and the Director of ArtSpace/Lima needs a JPG image for inclusion on the ArtSpace/Lima website. 


Category Notes  =

Special Effects-

            Due to the nature of digital photography, converting color images into other forms  of display does not merit the photo being entered into the ‘Special Effect’ Category – only further amending the image to produce an imaginary effect will constitute a ‘Special Effect’. As an example = keeping a tree green while all around is a black and white image should be entered into the ‘Special Effect’ Category

            So you may submit a Black and White, Sepia, Infra-red, etc. image into any category as long as no other manipulation has produced an imaginary effect.


HDR – High Dynamic Range =

            This is a combination of several images of the same scene at different exposures.  The images are blended together to create a more natural look or a manipulated look in a computer program.  The combining of images this way puts the photo into the ‘Special Effects’ Category.


Extreme Focus – Helicon Focus =

            This is a combination of several images of the same scene with the focus point gradually moved and then combined in a computer program.  The combining of images this way puts the photo into the ‘Special Effects’ Category.


Miscellaneous Category =

            This category is for any subject not addressed in the other category definitions. You cannot submit a third subject if you have already entered two into another category.  EX: A third ‘Still Life’ will not be accepted if two ‘Still Life’ photos have been entered into the ‘Still Life’ category.  A single ‘Still Life’ will not be accepted into this category when it should be in the ‘Still Life’ category.


Claiming Photographs:

            Entries not accepted can be claimed at ArtSpace/Lima during normal business hours. Entries that are accepted can be claimed at the end of the Exhibit during normal business hours
