Resubmission Rules 2023
Our goal is to make it possible to achieve the very best in photos. In some cases a member may wish to resubmit a photo applying suggestions from a judge in a competition or suggestions from another member or perhaps applying new Photoshop techniques that they have learned that would allow them to improve a photo. At the same time, we want to encourage taking new photos and we need to control submissions to avoid seeing the same entries repeatedly.
That said, the following resubmission rules have been adopted:
These rules apply to photos submitted for SCC photo competition only. You are in no way restricted from submitting your photos to any outside competitions.
There are two kinds of resubmissions:
(1) The photo being submitted is considered to be the same photo.
If a photo is considered to be the same photo it cannot be resubmitted in the same calendar year
A photo is considered to be the same photo if:
It is in the same category (Color, Mono, and Creative) as the original submission.
It has just had modifications such as cropping, resizing and editing.
It has had no modifications.
It is just being changed between digital and print.
It has had no modifications except for a name change.
(2) the photo being submitted is considered to be a different photo.
If a photo is considered to be a different photo it can be resubmitted in the same calendar year.
A photo is considered a different photo if:
It had been modified enough to be accepted into a different category than the original submission, for example:
It has been changed from a color entry to a mono entry or a mono entry to a color entry or from a mono or color to a creative entry.
A photo being resubmitted as a different photo must have a different name and may be resubmitted in the same calendar year, unless it was judged a 15. A photo cannot be resubmitted if it has received a score of 15 in an SCC photo competition (Except into Best of the Best).
