Rules

Competition Night

START TIMES:

Room booked from 7.30pm and open for entries.

All print entry slips are to be handed to the Print Secretary by 7.45pm. Prints delivered after that time may not be accepted.

Print Secretary and Assistant will place member’s prints on stands, one on each level in the relevant area.

All prints must clearly show a author’s name, title and the date of the competition on the back of the mount.

Prints without a name, title or competition date marked will not be credited with any points earned.

Authorship

Only the member’s original image(s) (positive, negative or digital) may be used and entered into competition(s).

Competition Scoring

Points will be awarded for each print or digital image entered into a monthly competition as follows:

  • 1 point for entry
  • An additional point if it is the first time the image is entered
  • An additional point if it is a set subject competition
  • An additional 3 points if the image is awarded a Credit
  • An additional 5 points if the image is awarded a Merit

Set Subject Digital Competition, entries will be awarded a score out of 15.

Number of Entries

Two (2) entries per section per competitor are allowed on any one competition night, ie 2 x Colour prints, 2 x Mono prints and 2 x Projected Images. The same image should not be entered into more than one section on the same competition night.

One (1) entry is allowed in the Set Subject Digital competition (SSDC).

Any work awarded a Merit or Credit during a calendar year may not be re-entered in a monthly competition in the same calendar year.

Any entry in the Set Subject Digital Competition that earns a score of 12 or more may not be re-entered in any monthly competition in the same year.

No one work may be entered in club competitions more than THREE times in total. This includes entries in the Set Subject Digital Competition.

In the case of a new print or duplicate of a particular image, this will NOT be considered to be a different work unless it has been substantially and obviously changed.

If an entry is changed from colour to mono or vice versa, then it is considered to be the same image. Changing an image from digital to print or vice/versa is considered to be the same image.

Condition of Work

All work must be presented in first class condition, not showing signs of wear or damage.

Print Identification

All prints must clearly show a author’s name, title and date of competition on the back of the mount. Labels for this purpose are available on the clubs website.

The author may also title any part of the viewed side of the print mount bearing in mind that this will become a part of the total presentation and may not be accepted outside this club’s competition.
