Changes to Camera Club
The Camera Club team has introduced some exciting changes to our Camera Club website. These changes are the culmination of several months' planning and we have incorporated ideas received from some of our members over the last few years.
The biggest change, apart from the refreshed look & feel, is that all pics appearing as a Pic of the Day are now selected based only on other members' ratings. At the beginning of each day the highest rated pic becomes the Pic of the Day.
This change will require lots of involvement from our members. We encourage you to rate and comment on other members' pics, just as you want feedback on your own pics.
More information can be found on our About and FAQ pages.
Answers to your questions
Will there still be competitions?
The top rated pic at the end of every month will win a prize, but the monthly and theme competitions in their old format are gone. The good news is that you can still submit your pics to be rated by other members, just like the old theme competitions.
Can we see each pic's score?
Yes, you are now able to see the overall rating achieved by each pic on the Rating page.
Can we still comment on pics?
Yes. In fact now you can comment on pics during the rating stage - you don't need to wait for a pic to become a Pic of the Day.
Where will the Pic of the Day come from?
The highest rated pic at the beginning of each day becomes the Pic of the Day. More details can be found on our About page.
Will there still be themes?
Yes, from time to time we will specify a theme on the page where you submit your pics.
Is there still a monthly prize for best pic?
Yes, the highest rated pic each month will earn its photographer R500. An announcement will be made at the beginning of the new month in our Blog and newsletter.
We encourage you to explore our new website and let us know what you think.
Please remember to rate and comment on the pics that have been submitted, and don't forget to submit your own pics.
The entries to our recent Monochrome competition that achieved an overall score of at least 2.5 stars will now be available for continued rating to see which of these pics will become Pic of the Day.
Pics submitted from now onwards will be available for rating as soon as they have been verified, but they will only be eligible for Pic of the Day after they have been on the website for at least 1 week.
We hope you enjoy these changes to our website. As always, your comments are most welcome.
