Club Competitions 2017 - 18

The club holds eight "stand alone" photographic competitions per year.

Members compete in novice, intermediate or advanced categories. The club invites experienced photographers, from outside the club, to judge the entries.

The running order of this season's competitions is as follows:

Competition Rules:

Prints, which may be any size but typically A4 or A3, to be mounted on suitable card, with a maximum size of 20" x 16" (500mm x 400mm).

PDI entries should be sized to a maximum of 1400 x 1050 pixels, portrait format images must be no more than 1050 pixels high. Images must be saved as high quality JPEG, in the sRGB colour space.

Each piece of work may be used a maximum of three times over two consecutive years.

A piece of work entered in a named competition (currently Landscape, Natural History, Frank Young and Glen Beach) cannot be entered again in the same named competition.

The Three of a Kind Panel competition must be three separate mounted Prints.

Titles for inclusion in competitions must be with the internal competition secretary by the Sunday evening preceding the competition night with the exception of the "Three-of-a-Kind" competition where entries are required two weeks in advance.

Natural History. Images submitted should depict flora and fauna that are wild and free. Images of domesticated birds, animals and cultivated plants are not admissible, similarly any image taken under controlled conditions such as wildlife parks, zoos or birds of prey taken at falconry centres or plants taken in the studio are not admissible. However, the above mentioned images may be entered into our open competitions provided the title clearly states the fact.

All work must be copyright of the entrant.
