Prints should be single mounted using a mount board with a maximum size of 50cm x 40cm. Board can be purchased from the club at a competitive price. Your image title and membership number should be the only details marked at the top left rear of the mount. The aperture window within the mount board is at the discretion of the photographer.
Name your file with image title and membership number only. Ideally resize them to 1600px x 1200px (horizontal x vertical) maximum or 1200px (vertical) maximum. The file size of each image should not exceed 2MB. These dimentions are the ones being used for the Angus Cup, so we have adopted them as the standard for this season.
Apart from Natural History competition which is judged internally by members, competitions are judged by an external judge and your digital files or prints need to be submitted by a given date before the competition so that the judge has time to score your work. The entries are anonymous, so the judge will not know who has entered which picture. The judging this season will be online and in adition to scoring each image, the judge will give comments on your images. There are likely to be both positive and negative comments made. Hopefully these will show you how to improve your work and encourage you to take better pictures.
