S4C End of Year Competition Results are AnnouncedAt the end of each competition year, all images that have been earned Awards or Honorable Mentions throughout the year are entered into a final competition to award Gold, Silver, Bronze and Best of Show in each category. Rankings or Standing in each skill level and category are also determined. The results have been announced and members of the Redlands Camera Club did very well. S4C has 11 image categories and, except for Interclub, 4 skill level categories in each section. Those members entering a category for the first competition year are entered at the E skill level. Levels then proceed to A, AA, and AAA determined by one’s performance in past competition years. As a photographer moves through the more advanced levels, a higher image score is needed to earn an HM or an Award. Standings in each Skill Level are determined by totaling the scores of a photographer’s 12 highest scoring images entered into competition that year and ranking those scores against all members who entered images in the same category at that level.
