3. Submissions details
The deadline for digital submissions in Friday [date] at 11.59pm & 59 seconds to allow us to prepare the order of submissions and score sheets for the judge. The judge will then have the chance to make an early judging of the submitted images to speed up events on our meeting night.Also please remember there is a slight change on how to submit your images: DO NOT identify your file with your name, only title pls (more below) and please stick to the deadline as images will not be accepted after deadline.

You will need to enter the details of your uploads on each tab for the special and open categories. This list will then printed and photos will be shown in that order on competition night:
4. Print submissions
You need to arrive no later than 7.15 on the night so that judging sheets can be prepared in time for the 7.30 start. (I am aiming to be at the venue at 6.30) Please ensure your prints are suitably mounted for ease of viewing/judging. Write your name and the picture’s title clearly on the back of the mount.
If you are entering a print please send a digital copy too, so they can be placed on our webpage or/and Facebook. This will also ensure that we have a record of every photo entered in any competition for future perusal.
Guests are welcome to attend the meeting and may submit images to both competitions. However their scores will not contribute to the year end scoring.
