Our 2015 Print Exhibition guidelines & rules.

2015 Print Exhibition guidelines & rules

1. Categories
Members can submit a maximum of three images which cover the two categories of either General or Architectural images.
As guidance to members, architectural themed images should depict the style in which a building is designed. It can be exterior or interior and can portray the whole building or a detail of the building. Statues and sculptures are also acceptable. However, care must be taken when including figures or surrounding landscape to demonstrate scale: ensure that the architectural subject is still the dominant factor in the image.
2. Number of Images
The three images can be any combination of images within the two categories and they can be either colour or monochrome.
For example: you may wish to submit one colour landscape image, one colour architectural image and one monochrome architectural image OR three general OR three architectural OR two of one category and one of the other category, all colour or all mono or a mixture.
First, Second, Third and Commended Certificates will be awarded in both categories and the best monochrome image, in either category, will be awarded the Denis Thorpe Trophy.
3. Image Size
Maximum – A3 + 329 x 483 mm
Minimum – A4 210 x 297 mm (approximate will be acceptable)
Or any size in between.
Please leave prints unmounted. If a border is included on the print it will be trimmed by Ray when it is mounted onto foamboard as all prints will be presented for judging flush mounted.
4. Cost of Entry
£1 per print to cover mounting onto foamboard.

5. Digital Files
If possible we would be grateful if you could supply us with a digital file of each image, to be handed in together with your print entry as we intend to use these images as our contribution to the photo exchange with the club in New York. Each file should be saved to Maximum quality and it will be resized later before sending to New York – no changes will be made to your actual images.
6. Handing in your prints and Entry Forms
May 14th will be the night for handing in your prints and a reception team will be pleased to receive your entry, fees and digital files. If you are unable to be there on May 14th please make arrangements with Jason or Keith beforehand for receipt of your entry.
Entry Forms: these will be available on the handing in night but to speed the process up on the night, forms will be available in advance, to be submitted on the night with your entry.
