competition rules

The PermaJet Aperture Trophy

1. This is the main internal PRINT competition held during the club season.

2. An image is only eligible for entry once into the main four rounds. At the end of the season we have a competition called ‘Play It Again’, (see below)

• An image entered, in a PRINT competition, cannot be entered in an internal PDI competition.

• This also applies to derivative images (colour/toned/monochrome) versions of the same image.

3. Entries may be processed by either conventional or digital methods and may be trade printed.

4. Prints can be entered in colour or in monochrome (see HERE for our definition of a monochrome print).

5. Each print must be mounted on lightweight board which must not exceed 4mm in thickness and which must measure exactly 400mm x 500mm. Mounts that deviate from these sizes, unmounted prints, framed prints or prints with any Velcro or sticky areas will be rejected. Where this appears to be an issue that can be fixed, the Print Secretary may ask the photographer to remount the print (time permitting) or withdraw it from the competition.

There is no minimum image size within the mount. But think whether it is appropriate for the type of image and if the Judge will fully appreciate its qualities at a reasonable viewing distance.

6. The reverse of each mounted print must clearly bear the print title and the name of the photographer. If the orientation of the print is not obvious, some indication should be marked on the back, e.g. ‘This Way Up’. Prints should also be numbered 1 to 3.

7. Prints must be handed in at least ONE week before a competition, along with a PDI of the image/s. Please submit your image/s via PhotoEntry, using the link and password which has been emailed to you. Please read these upload instuctions: LINK

8. Judging: A visiting photographer will be invited for each print competition. Should a Judge not be available on the night then the result will be reached by a vote of Members present.

9. Marks will be awarded to every entry. The Judge will be asked to select the best 4 entries in order of merit. Those entries selected will become eligible for entry in the Print of the Year competition.

10. There is no limit on the number of external competitions that prints may enter.

11. In the event of a high number of entries, the Print Competition Secretary reserves the right to remove all third images to ensure that a competition does not over run and to give the Judge time to comment on the remaining images. Number your images with this in mind.

12. The top 4 prints in each round will be retained by the Print Competition Secretary for the final.

 

The Panel of Three

This is a PRINT competition with slightly different rules to The Aperture Trophy.

1. Each Member may submit three printed images on a theme of their choice. Colour or monochrome. Prints must be mounted on board, but there is no limitation to the size of board or the arrangement of the images, For example, all 3 images can be presented on 3 separate boards or 3 up on a single board. For reference, examples of previous years entries can be found here.

2. Please submit your images via PhotoEntry, using the link and password which has been emailed to you. Please read these upload instuctions:LINK

The Bob Forshaw Projected Digital Image (PDI) Competition ('The Bob')

1. This is usually in 4 rounds each season.

3. Members may enter up to 3 images (unless notified otherwise).

3. An image is only eligible for entry ONCE into the main four rounds. We have a competition called ‘Play It Again’, (see below) where non-placed images may be re-entered.

• An image entered, in a PRINT competition, cannot be entered in an internal PDI competition.

• This also applies to derivative images (colour/toned/monochrome) versions of the same image.

4. File format: Images must not exceed 1400 pixels wide by no more than 1050 pixels high. If you are using your image in portrait orientation, the maximum of 1050 pixels high still applies. Scale your image proportionally so its size does not exceed these figures and at least one side is at the maximum size allowed.

Click HERE more help on preparing PDI images.

5. The image colour space should be sRGB. This provides the best match between what you see on your calibrated monitor and the calibrated projector we use. With other colour spaces or none you may find significant colour variations when projected.

6. File naming: The file name should be the name of the image, e.g. "Moonlit Night.jpg" (no quotes). The title will be overlaid on the image during the competition.

7. Please submit your image/s via PhotoEntry, using the link and password which has been emailed to you. Please read these upload instuctions: LINK

10. At the end of the 4 rounds the member with the highest combined score will be awarded the Bob Forshaw Trophy.

11. Judging: All rounds are judged by a guest judge/photographer. The top 4 images from each round go forward to the PDI Of The Year final at the end of the season.

The judge will be asked to mark each entry out of a maximum of ten points. In the final the judge will be asked to select the four best images including the PDI of the Year, if necessary by the award of one or more plus marks.

Taken on a Mobile Phone (a PDI competition)

1. Members may enter up to 3 images (unless notified otherwise) via PhotoEntry (see above).

2. All images must be taken AND edited on the mobile device.

3. Images may be resized to the specified DPI dimensions (see 2 above) on a PC/Mac if necessary.

4. The top 4 images will go forward to the DPI of The Year final.

OTHER INTERNAL PDI COMPETITIONS

Bob rules 2 to 9 will apply to any other internal PDI competition listed on the programme.

GENERAL RULES APPLYING TO ALL OUR INTERNAL CLUB COMPETITIONS

• Every entry must have a title, the use of ‘Untitled’ is not acceptable and the image will be disallowed.

• All aspects and copyright of every image MUST be your total and exclusive work as the submitting photographer. You may not include any element that was originated by or is the copyright of other photographers.

• No Watermarks, titles or photographer’s name/qualifications are to appear either on the front of a print or in a DPI image

Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society reserve the right to publish any competition entry in connection with promoting the club, without payment. The Photographer will be accredited.

NEW: PLAY IT AGAIN

We want to see new work and therefore re-submission of any image in the main rounds is not permitted, so ‘Play It Again’ is a competition held towards the end of the season, it's an opportunity to re-enter up to 2 prints and/or 2 PDIs that failed to place in the top 4 in previous rounds, for a second appraisal by a guest judge. Marks awarded here will not be counted towards the final PermaJet Aperture Cup total or The Bob but the top 4 prints/PDIs will go on to the Print and PDI of The Year finals.
