End of Year Awards
Each year, CVDCC announces photographic awards at its end of year Banquet. Two kinds of awards are made:
- Photographer of the Year Awards (Bronze, Silver, Gold): these are awarded to photographers who have accumulated most points in competitions during the year. In earlier years this include both Digital and Print, but now just Digital. 1 point is counted for every image entered, 3 for an Honorable Mention, and 5 for an Excellence Award. In recent years, only the 20 highest scoring images are counted.
- Image of the Year Awards: every image that received an HM or an Excellence Award during the competition year is entered into a special year-end competition that is judged by a 3-person panel of outside judges. Awards (7-10 HMs, Bronze, Silver, Gold) are made for each competition Division.
Special certificates are provided to all awardees. Additionally, gold awardees also now receive medals.
