This is the hand-in date for the internal Annual Competition. There is no theme. Both digital images and print images are acceptable with a maximum entry of four images per member. This number may have to be reduced in order to keep to the "80-images-rule". Results do not count towards the annual league table for each category.
Images or prints that have been entered in previous internal competitions may be entered in this competition.
You can submit digital images up to 8 weeks before the competition date by logging on to the Members page of the website, selecting My Images from the left hand menu and then following the instructions. Print images can be handed in to the club usually up to two weeks in advance of the hand-in date. Instructions for submitting print images can be found on the Information page of the website.
The Print format requirements for club competitions are:
•The visible area of the print must be no less than 35 square inches e.g. 5 x 7 inches or any other size with an area of 35 square inches or greater.
•Prints may be monochrome or colour
•All prints submitted must be mounted on stiff mount board.
•Maximum size of the mount is 16 x 20 inches or 40 x 50 cm.
•Membership number, title, classification and ranking should be clearly written on the back of the mountat the bottom left hand corner when viewed with the image face down. This is important as judges expect the image title to be in this position; especially for abstract prints or prints where it is not clear which edge is meant to be the top. Prints with no classification included will be entered in the Advanced class.
Print entries should be accompanied by a digital submission of the image entered, submitted via the club website on the My Images page. This copy may be used for collating, selection and projection on judging evenings; and also for presentation on the club website after the competition has been judged. Digital copies may also be handed in to the Competitions Secretary on digital media, as per DPI competition entries.
