Entering club competitions
The thought of entering a club competition for the 1st time can be daunting to a new member. We have therefore put together this short guide explaining how to go about it.
It is important to read and understand the competition rules because these guidance notes can only be a summary. If you have any questions please speak to any member of the committee and they will explain how everything works.
Briefly however most of our club competitions accept entries either as prints or as digital entries to display on a screen which are referred to in camera club jargon as digital projected images or DPIs for short.
In recent years there is a trend to call them Projected Images or Projected Digital Images PDI.
In an attempt to avoid unnecessary confusion we tend just to refer to entries which are not physical prints as Digital.
The club programme will tell you what competitions have been organised and when you need to have your entries ready.
Please note that some of the competitions will have themes or categories that your photo needs to fit into.
You should check with the rules to find out how many images you can enter. For Club competitions you can enter 4 prints and 5 digital. But special rules apply in the case of the Annual Exhibition and some other events.
Once you have chosen your images you simply head to Photo Entry via the Club website and upload your entry.
