Fort Worth-Dallas Competition: Oct. 29

The 2019 Bird competition will be Oct. 29 in Dallas; information will be available at club meetings beginning in August. The Fort Worth Camera Club retained The Bird trophy in 2018 by earning a total of 345 points from independent judges at the annual contest. The Dallas club received a total of 338 points. Learn more about the 2018 winners.  

The contest is an opportunity to see judges in action and gain insight into their thought process as images are viewed and scored.

The 2019 competition will be at 7 p.m., at the meeting location of the Dallas Camera Club, Congregation Shearith Israel, 9401 Douglas Ave., Dallas. Find a map.

  • Despite the name, the contest is not about bird photography.
  • A total of 15 digital and 15 print images from each club will be judged. Judges view the images in random order; images are identified only with a title.
  • Judges are not current or recent members of either club nor do they have information about entrants.
  • The club with the highest combined point total will be the winner.

Fort Worth Camera Club was the competition winner in 2018 (and every year since 2007). The contest is alternately hosted by each club, and has been held since 1964, except 1975 and 2016. The Competition Committee selects and manages Fort Worth entries. (Competition is open only to club members.)

History

The Bird competition began when Emily Guthrie Smith suggested that an annual contest would be fun for both clubs. Smith was a Fort Worth native and nationally known artist and teacher. Her works are in private collections, museums and the Archives of American Artists in the Smithsonian Institution.

She donated and carved the trophy, a wood sculpture engraved with the winning club’s name, but the reason she chose a bird is not known. The trophy is perched on the podium at our club meetings.
