Internal Competition Guidelines for 2023/24

There will be seven internal club competitions during the 2023/24 season, with the first one on September 23. The table below shows the relevant hand-in dates for the season, the competition dates and the judges. Internal club competitions are open to all fully paid-up club members. You can enter up to two digital images (pdi's) and/or up to two prints on any subject into each internal club competition. These can be colour and/or mono.

 

Once an image has been used in an internal club competition, it cannot be used again. This is to encourage members to use new work. NB: The marks for these entries will be used to determine the Photographer of the Year.Members should note that entering fewer than the specified number of images and or competitions will result in fewer points at the end of the year. The winner will be announced and awarded at the club's AGM in May. There will be a PDI Photographer Of The Year, and a Print Photographer Of The Year. Prints should be mounted on a board measuring 50cm x 40cm. Please put the Print's Title on the back. DO NOT PUT YOUR NAME ON THE PRINT for internal club competitions.

 

Digital Images (pdi's) should be sent as a jpeg that is 1920px wide max by 1200px high max, and each image must be titled. They should be sent to the Internal Competition Secretary by email (see below).Any PDI’s that do not conform to the required dimensions will be returned to the club member to change to the correct format. The Internal Competition Secretary will not change any image. This is to protect both parties in case any changes affect the quality of the image. If any member needs help with the sizing or the preparation of their work, please ask. All Images must be the work of the photographer and not copied from other photographs, works of art or other documents. All Images will be marked out of 20.

 

The Image with the highest mark will win first place in each section. In the event of a tie, the judge will decide on the winner. The overall winning image will be awarded an extra point. i.e., 21 points instead of 20 points. All images must be handed in by the relevant competition's hand-in date which will be 3 weeks before the date of the competition. Late entries cannot be accepted. This is to allow time for the images and the relevant paperwork to be prepared and sent to the judge for them to have at least two weeks to assess all the images entered.

 

The Internal Competition Secretary reserves the right to amend these guidelines whenever necessary. Entry into the competition implies acceptance of these guidelines. Please note you can enter your images as early as you like. There is no need to leave it to the last minute!!
