Print Competitions

Entry Deadlines and Forms

Although the meeting itself starts at 7:30 PM, on competition nights the deadline for entering prints is 7:15 PM. The digital copy of the print must be uploaded by 10 AM on the day of the competition so people can see the image over Zoom.

Members may enter a total of three images into a monthly competition with a maximum of two images in any one category and a maximum of three  printed images and a maximum of two projected images. Categories are defined below. Media are defined as Digital/Projected and Print.

Any image may be resubmitted ONE time, provided it did not place in competition the first time submitted. Place is defined as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or Honorable Mention.

A print entry form must be completed and submitted for each print. It consists of two parts; one identifies the maker of the print so your print can find its way back to you (labeled "info"), and the other is used by the Print team should your print win in competition (labeled "scoring").  Print entry forms are available for download in PDF format and Word format. Please print or computer type your title on the forms. Make sure you identify the "Top" of your matted photo and align the two parts so they are lined up properly with the orientation of the photo.

The maximum print size is 16 " X 20" matted. You can go smaller but not larger. Framed prints, metal prints,  or prints with attachments that might damage other prints will not be accepted. The maker's name must not appear on the face of the mount or print.

If you are planning to use your mats over again and don't want to permanently glue them down, please make sure you use masking tape or some other non-permanent method to affix the photo to the mat and also close the mat around the photo.

The Image Uploading Instructions and Upload Tutorial (this is a large document and may take a few minutes to download) can be downloaded in PDF format.
