The Newfoundland Club of America, Inc. holds an annual photo contest, open to all NCA members. The primary contest is for adult members of the NCA. There will be a separate competition for photos taken by junior members or children, up to 18 years of age, of members. The winning junior member’s photograph will compete in the adult class. The winning photograph appears on the front cover of the 4th quarter issue of Newf Tide and the second place photo on the back cover. Photographs awarded adult and junior runners up will be published on inside pages of the same issue.
1. The contest is open only to NCA members or their children under the age of 18 years. Members of the Newf Tide Policy Committee, the Board of Directors and their immediate families are not eligible to participate.
2. Photographs submitted by NCA junior members or NCA family members up to 18 years of age will be judged in separate divisions – up to age 12 and ages 12-18.
3. A judge or panel of judges selected by the Newf Tide Policy Committee will select the winners based on the quality, composition, originality, and appeal of the photograph. Judges’ decisions are final.
4. Placements will be awarded to the photographer, not to the dog’s owner or the person who submitted the photo for a photographer.
