Internal competitions

For all internal competitions this year (including the mono competition) there will be both Print and Digital sections. You may enter a maximum of 3 images per competition – either Two Prints and One Digital or vice versa. Please also assign an ‘Entry Number’ (1, 2 or 3) to each entry, just in case we get too many entries for judging in any competition. If that does happen your image numbered 3 will be excluded. This may be either a print or a digital entry (so you could be left with 2 in one section and none in the other).

The usual size restrictions for the internal competitions are in place – i.e. up to 1400 x 1050 in size, < 2Mb file size.

The title does not need to include your membership number.

All our internal competitions for the 2021/22 season have now been completed
