Clinic Assignment Topics

2024 / 2025 Projected Topics

Assignment category images must have been captured between Dec 11th 2023 and due date for submission in to the appropriate Clinic during the 2024/25 season.

Advice from judges – The assignment topic in a judged clinic must still be a compelling image to receive a high score. The images are judged in as are the other categories using factors such as technical proficiency, composition, distractions, and impact as well the subject meeting the assignment definition.

Flat-Back by Dennis Martin


Any vehicle designed for operation on ordinary roads, typically with four wheels, powered by an internal combustion or an electric motor, and able to carry a small number of people rather than relatively large amounts of cargo. Sedans, SUVs, sports cars, compacts, and limos fit this definition. Other vehicles primarily designed to carry cargo or for specific work purposes, such as pickup trucks, delivery vans, farm tractors, or road graders do not belong in this category. Motorcycles also are not automobiles.

Door In The Blue Village by Ian Hodson


Images of entrance/exit doors. Some area surrounding the door(s) included but the scene should showcase the door(s). Composite images are allowed.

Marbleous Ruins by Gary Cook

Low Angle

An image where the camera is positioned below eye level and pointing upward, capturing the subject or scene from a lower perspective; usually making the subject or setting seem powerful, grand or threatening.
