Time line:

For your work to be considered each of the photographers must submit their images to their respective clubs by midnight, Wednesday, 31 October 2018.  Each club will then decide which 20 images to put forward for the competition and the deadline for this is 30 November 2018.

The entries will be judged during December 2018 and the winner and scores announced.

Image categories:

             The four image categories for this year are:

·         Dramatic Light

·         Urban Life

·         Weather

·         Motion

Photographers are free to photographically illustrate these categories as they wish.

Submission of images:

Individuals can initially submit as many images for consideration in each category as they like.  Each club will decide on the final 5 images in each of the 4 categories to put forward.  Any individual photographer can only have one picture in each category however an individual photographer can have 4 images chosen as long as they are in 4 separate categories.

Mechanics:

  • Submitted images must be in .jpg format. For best results, save them in SRGB color space.
  • With any submission, all post production work must be done by the maker of the image.
  • Size your images to fit a 1400 by 1050 monitor screen. That means that horizontal or landscape images should be 1400 pixels wide, whereas vertical or portrait formats will be 1050 pixels.

Intent:

This friendly competition is designed to encourage individual photographers to produce images against themes and then to have the images judged against another club.  The prize for winning is simply bragging rights which belong to the winning club.  It is also designed so there is a minimum of effort involved in entering images in the competition.
