2019 Club Sports Photo Comp

The Club Sports Photo Comp (CSPC) is an annual event within App State’s Club Sports Program. Any individual can take the photographs, but an officer on the respective team must submit an entry form for each photograph submitted (up to a maximum of three). There is no entry fee or any other type of fee throughout this competition, so all teams are encouraged to participate.

Selecting Images

The organizers of Club Sports Photo Comp (CSPC) encourage all teams to submit images for optimal promotion of the Club Sports Program. We celebrate the accessibility to photographic arts that the digital revolution has fostered and are proud of the hard work each team puts out each and every year.

Submitted images must be sharp enough and of sufficient quality to enlarge into a print with minimum dimensions of no less than 24” on any one side. Individuals shooting in digital should use at least a four mega-pixel camera and shooting with low ISO will help reduce “digital noise” present in the image.

In general, we are looking for images that capture the spirit of our Club Sports athletes with their emotions and actions. Photos must be of current Club Sports athletes displaying the competitive spirit of the program. Finally, submit the images that your team is excited about and enjoy the process of creativity that photography inspires!
