Star Ratings

The Accumulated Star Awards system was established in 2011 to recognize photographic excellence and competitive spirit across all categories. Star Points are earned for each winning entry in regular monthly competitions throughout the years of one's membership. A First Place ribbon earns 10 points, Second Place 9 points, Third Place 8 points, and Honorable Mention 6 points. All year-end competition winners have already been awarded points and do not count again. Novice competition winners do not earn Star Points.

The legacy Star Ratings below were awarded within each specific category of competition. Points were earned as described above. These Star Ratings were discontinued with the all-new categories established in the 2010-2011 competition year, and replaced by the Accumulated Star Awards above. Star Ratings for former members who long ago left NBCC are omitted for brevity.
