Entering the Competition

Identification

 

Prior to entering any of the internal print competitions members should ensure that they have been issued with two print competition entry numbers by the Internal Competitions Organiser.  These numbers remain valid for all future print competitions unless other notified.  Where two prints are used in the same competition both numbers must be used, the print having the lower number will be shown first.  Prints should be labelled on the back in the top left hand corner (as viewed from behind when in the correct orientation) with the entry number and print title.  The photographer's name must not appear on the mount.  A 1400 x 1050 pixel digital file of each print meeting the same criteria as DPI entries (see Projected Images) should also be submitted for record and management purposes.  The file should be named with the sequence number, entry number and title, e.g. 01 1234 Title.jpg.

 

Files for DPI competitions should be given a two digit sequence number, 01 or 02 followed by the title, e.g. 02 Winter Sunrise.jpg.  The member's entry number is not required.
