MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER

GENERAL RULES

This competition is intended to challenge club members to take photographs on a variety of themes, and then be judged by the membership.  Judging takes place on one of the normal club evenings.

  1. We want to encourage new work, so the age of the photos taken should not exceed 18 months, and they should not have appeared in any other competition prior to the evening.  The work may not be used in subsequent club competitions in the same season, except for the Images of the Year Competition, but may be used in critique sessions.
  2. For prints, there is no minimum size, but they must be mounted on a 50 cm by 40 cm board.  Work will be displayed in their themes.  PDI should be supplied in the normal competition format.
  3. Prints are to be brought on the night, but ther titles and theme category must be listed in an email, together with the files for PDI, one week before the date of the competition.
  4. All images will be marked between 2 and 5 points.  The Master Photographer award will be given to the photographer who has amassed the most points, combining prints and PDI.

THEMES AND ENTRY RULES FOR 2018/19

  1. People (including street or portrait)
  2. Landscapes (Including Seascapes and Cityscapes)
  3. Creative (including Altered Reality, Composites, Macro, and other lens effects)
  4. Monochrome - An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of gray which can include pure black and pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a grayscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example by Sepia, red, gold, etc.)   A grayscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.

Members may enter one image, either print or PDI, on each of up to three themes chosen from the four above.
