MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER

This is a print competition to challenge club members to take photographs in a variety of themes and then to be judged by the membership.

 

  1. The Master Photographer competition is held on one evening, members to enter one print in each of 3 themes from a choice of 4. The Themes for 2016-2017 are : SILHOUETTES : URBAN LIFE : GARDENS : LANDSCAPE

  2. We want to encourage new work so the age of photos taken should not exceed 18 months and 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 Image of the Year Competition, but may be used in critique sessions.

  3. There is no minimum size of print. All work to be mounted on a 50cm by 40 cm board. Work will be displayed in their themes.

  4. Work to be brought on the night of the competition. The membership will each give up to 5 points for each print, only giving zero for their own . Marking will be completed in the first half of the evening. A senior member of the club will give a critique of the work in the second half. The points will be collated by the organiser and eventually posted on the club website.

  5. The Master Photographer Award will be given to the photographer who has amassed the most points over the round. This will be announced at the presentation evening. In the event of a draw then the number of themed wins will be taken into account. If there is still a draw then more than one award will be given.
