Competition Info

As a reminder all projected images should be saved as jpeg files, high resolution, with dimensions of 1600 pixels wide and/or 1200 pixels high. These are maximum dimensions for width or height. See the PDF file below written by Ian Johnson illustrating one way to do this.

Each year there is a mix of open and set subject competitions. Please see the programme page for the subjects for the year.

Competitions are held on the first Wednesday of each month.

Each member may submit 3 Digital Projected Images and 3 Prints which will be judged in two separate categories.

There will be 11 competitions, January – November, followed by a grand final in December. The grand final will use the first 3 DPIs and the first 3 prints from each of the 11 previous competitions. The winner of the grand final  for DPIs and the winner for prints will be the the two overall winners for the year.

All members may choose to submit DPIs, prints or both each month. A league table for DPIs and separately league table for prints will also be kept so that there will also be a DPI league winner and a print league winner at the end of the year.

An individual image may only be submitted into the league competitions a maximum of twice. If an image is awarded 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, it cannot be entered again.
