Monthly Competition Rules
There are 12 monthly competition evenings held throughout the year, normally during the final week of each month, unless specified differently in the current Programme.
Two competitions take place on each competition evening, one for Prints and one for Projected Digital Images. Each member can enter up to three Prints and three PDIs per competition.
The Prints and PDIs entered in any Monthly competition should not have been entered in any previous Club Monthly Competition or previous Annual Competitions.
Six of the competitions are on specific subjects selected by the Competition Consultant and six are on ‘Open’ subjects (of any subject the author wishes).
Entries will be judged either by an appointed Judge from outside our club’s membership or by an individual member of the Club (who has not entered the specific competition).
Whenever possible, entries will be previewed by the Judge prior to the competition.
The Judge will discuss and appraise the entries and award a maximum of 20 points to each individual entry. The Judge will then announce the top 3 entries to gain 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
