The annual Portfolio Competition will be on the 31st March 2022. This year the portfolios should each consist of 3 prints on a theme (Triptych).
Each member can enter a total of 2 portfolios and as normal the competition will be judged by the members.
Competition prints can be any size but must be mounted and fit on 400 x 500 mm mount board and can be in portrait or landscape format. The subject matter as normal will be Open so members can choose what subjects to enter. Home printed or trade printed prints are allowed.
A Club print label should be attached to the back of each print. Blank labels will be available in the Club prior to the start of the new season.
At this stage we are not sure if print competitions will be held in the Club or on Zoom. If the competition is being held on Zoom members entering will also be asked to supply a 1600 x 1200 jpg copy of the print.
The Club operates a league system for competitions with promotions and demotions each year depending on the league table scores. League one colour and league one mono each consist of 15 members and all other members are in League two. A complete list of who is in each league will be published prior to the start on the new season.
Complete competition rules can be found in the Clubs Members Handbook.
