Club Competition Rules (updated September 2016)


In both the print and projected image sections, there will be a further division into ‘General (No or Limited Experience)’, Intermediate (some experience) and ‘Advanced (Experienced)’ Sections.  The decision which section a member should enter  will be determined between member and Competition Secretaries, on which the decision of the latter is final and will form a prefix to the Membership Number.

Images entered into the ‘monochrome’ competition must not contain more than one ‘colour’ although images toned with a single colour will be acceptable eg. Sepia toned, Cyanotype.

  1. Print entries must bear the title of the competition, the title of the image and entrant's membership number including the section prefix (‘G’, ‘I’ or ‘A’) on the back.
    Digital Projected Images should be entered on a CD/memory stick with identification on it, as a JPEG not exceeding 1400 pixels wide by 1050 pixels high. The file name should include only the Title-MembershipNo.jpg and (R) if appropriate see Eg. For a member in the ‘General (No or Limited Experience)’ Section

           Man-G27.jpg
           Trouble and Strife-G27 (R).jpg
     
  2. All entries are to be handed to the Competition Secretary by the specified hand-in dates.  From this point the Competition Secretary is responsible for all entries. Members must only reclaim entries from the Competition Secretary.
     
  3. For each Competition, a member may enter up to three prints and up to three digitally projected imagesIf a member opts to enter three projected images then one image must be  marked as a reserve (R) in the file name.
    The number of entries/member will be controlled so that the total entry to a competition does not exceed 100 (or the maximum number permitted by the judge), firstly by removing the Reserve DPI entries from members with 3 print entries.  Then, if necessary, further DPIs will be removed from entrants with prints so that the number of entries/member does not exceed 3 before other Reserve DPIs are removed.
     
  4.  All entries must be the result of original images taken by the member.
     
  5.  Digitally manipulated and produced images are acceptable as recognised by the PAGB.
     
  6. Each print must have one side of at least 7” (19 cm) excluding  the mount which should not exceed 5040 cm.
     
  7. Any image which is not placed or given a commendation by the judge may be resubmitted for another competition provided the subject matter matches the competition title.  Placed or commended images cannot be entered into any other club competition and must not be altered for the print & PDI of the year competition.
     
  8.  Copies of images that have been placed – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Highly Commended & Commended will be put on the Website. The authors of placed prints should let the Competition Secretary have a digital file by E-mail of that image of a suitable size – 14001050 pixels as a jpeg – by Friday following the judging. If sending the files by E-mail is not possible, entrants should bring copies of the digital file on a CD or memory stick to the judging so that it can by copied by the Competition Secretary after the judging should it be placed.  If the authors do not want their images put onto the Website, they should inform the Competition Secretaries that this is the case on the night of the competition.
     
  9. Interclub Battles:  Entries for Interclub Battles are usually chosen from the winning club competition prints and PDIs. Further entries may be handed to (or requested by) the Competition Secretaries in accordance with rules 1. and 6 for possible selection.  A selection committee, which will generally consist of three members, will be responsible for deciding which entries will represent the Club in the battle.

Print Panel Competition

  • The Panel Competition is an annual competition. It’s intention to allow members to have a long term project that they can work on during the 2016/17 year.
  • Theme - TBC. The aim is to get three photographs that work together well. Maybe to show as visual art or perhaps to convey a story. Three random photographs, that may be excellent individually, shown together is not likely to succeed.
  • Size - the maximum size of the print is A4. Square format photographs may be submitted with the maximum size being
    210mm x 210mm. The minimum size is 100mm on the shortest side for all formats
  • Mounts - these can be any size. Three prints mounted in one mount is acceptable
  • Layout - the layout can be varied e.g.  2 x 1 or 3 in a row (horizontally or vertically) or 1 above & 2 below.
  • Prizes - there will be two prizes, one for the General category and one for the Advanced category - i.e. in line with the other club competitions. The competition will be judged by Richard Jones.

    We are sure that you will find this project very rewarding and challenging and we look forward to receiving lots of entries.

To remind you, this competition is for 3 prints up to A4 (the mount can be larger) which will be judged as a panel of three rather than as individual images.
