Guidance on Prints

All prints MUST be accompanied by a digital version of the image in the same format as you would enter it for a DPI competition (see above). All prints should have their title and the owner’s membership number written on the back. It’s a good idea to write this on a removable piece of masking tape.
 
Natural History
 

The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain has defined Natural History as:depicting living, untamed animals and uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology and the wider diversity of natural phenomena. Photographs of animals which are domesticated, caged or under any form of restraint as well as cultivated plants are therefore ineligible. Minimal evidence of humans is acceptable for nature subjects, such as nature adapting to an environment modified by humans, e.g. Barn Owls, weather impacting on the environment.

Manipulation or modification to the original must be limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the original scene.

ALL WINNING DIGITAL IMAGES FILES AND PRINTS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO BE ENTERED ON OTHER INTERNAL CLUB COMPETITIONS. THE CLUB RESERVES THE RIGHT TO USE COMPETITION ENTRIES FOR 12 MONTHS IN INTERCLUB COMPETITIONS
