Scoring

How Club Scoring Works

  • A continuous record of each member's scored points is maintained throughout their membership at BCG.

  • Members may request their score at any time convenient to the scorer, and scores are published periodically.

Club achievement badges are awarded according to the number of points acquired. The points won in Monthly, Annual and Interclub competitions are automatically collated by our Club Scorekeeper, but those acquired in competitions outside Club and Interclub must be claimed, along with evidence (e.g. Catalogue or Report Card), from the Scorekeeper directly.

Achievement badges are presented Annually - at the Annual Dinner and Trophy Night.

  • Monthly and Annual Competition scores only are considered for annual trophies.

  • Points from Interclub and Outside Competitions are included in Life Scores only, and count towards the awarding of Badges.


Monthly Competition

Points for images entered into monthly competitions have two components:

  • Place Points which are based on the judges evaluation of the image; and
  • Entry Points which are awarded for the effort of entering and are in additionto Place Points.

Member Upgradings and Regradings

Recommendations for upgrading are made by the Scorekeeper to the Committee at the conclusion of a year's competition. The formula for upgrading is Total Score in Monthly Competitions in Prints, Slides and/or Digital Projected Images (minus entry points) divided by the Number of Entries submitted.

  • If, after a year's competition, this result is an average point score of 8 or more, then upgrading is recommended.

  • These points must be obtained from a minimum number of entries, i.e. 75% of the year's total number of monthly competitions.

  • Members will be invited, on reaching the set standard, to accept upgrading. This upgrading can be declined for 1 year. However, continuation of appropriate standards in the following year will make upgrading compulsory for that member.

  • Individuals who wish to have their current grading reviewed may apply, in writing, to the Committee for consideration of their grade. Re-grading (up or down) will be effective before the beginning of each competition year.
