The Cranford-Millburn Camera Club hosts the CMCC Memorial Competition, annually in December during the club’s Holiday Party. The competition was originally organized by Roman Kurywczak and Ben Venezio as a tribute to Terry Boyer, a founding member of the Cranford-Millburn Camera Club and inspiring nature photographer. The competition has been reorganized as tribute to all former CMCC members who have passed away.

Competition Rules

Club members are invited to submit one (1) printed image for the CMCC Memorial Competition. Images may be of any subject. The image should be placed in a mat but not framed. Images that are previous competition winners may not be entered. Images will be divided into competition classes. Club members will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite image from each competition class during the Holiday Party. Based on the votes from their peers, one image from each competition class will be selected as the winners.
