Internal Print Competitions


Prints must be submitted to the Print Secretary at the meeting that takes place one week prior to the competition. In addition PDI images of your entries must also be
e-mailed to the
Print Secretary with the requisite Exif file information and in the same format as for PDI competitions prior to the competition taking place. Follow the instructions in the Image Authoring Advice section on the Documents page of this site if in doubt.

♦ Images MUST be on a 50cm x 40cm mount. This is a universal and specified size of print mount which was established to avoid damage caused by smaller prints to others when placed in a pile prior to judging. Prints should be in a Window Mount however a “full page bleed flush mounted image”, namely one that covers the whole area of

the mount, is also acceptable but please note that damage to the print edges during handling may occur. Please ask if you need help cutting mounts.

♦ Minimum print area 308 sq cm (48 sq inches). Equates to approximately 20.5 x 15.02 cm or 8 x 6 inches.

♦ Image title and the name of the photographer to be clearly shown on the rear of the mount in the top left hand corner when viewed from the back.

♦ The front of the image shall not show any identification as to the photographer.

♦ Printed borders – as required by yourself.

♦ Note that pre-cut-to-size mount-board, backing board and masking tape can
be purchased through the club at bulk prices. Please speak to Vic Hainsworth
(01206 562993) for details.
