Rules

Please go to the appropriate section and read carefully as if your entries do not comply with the rules they may be rejected from the competitions. If you need assistance please ask one of the committee, or a more experienced member of the club.

 

New Scoring System effective from September 2017

1. Members can enter up to 2 prints or digital images into each internal club competition. 

2.  Members in all groups can enter print images up to size A3.

2. Any image/print which has received a score of 20, 19 or 18 of an internal club competition cannot be entered in any other internal club competition (it can be entered in external competitions).

3. For the purposes of the league tables, images will be marked out of 20 points and members will only be awarded the points gained for the higher scoring of the 2 images/prints; i.e. no points are awarded for the lower scoring image/print.

4. As a member of the club, at the beginning of the year you will only be able to submit images/prints into the Club Group. You can only move into the Premier Group upon promotion at the end of the season (i.e. being in the top 5 of Club Group).  Demotion to Club Group from Premier Group at the end of the season if in the bottom 5 placings.

5. You no longer receive points for entering your prints or digital files in the league tables.

In the event of a tie at the end of the season the average higher score will be used to establish the winner.

Note. - In the unlikely event that images/prints submitted for competitions are lost and not included in the competition; at the end of the season the competitor’s scores will be totaled and their average score added to their end-of-year score.
