Internal competitions

Four Internal Competitions Per Year

We have four internal club competitions each year. Members can submit  up to 2 entries into each of the following categories:

  • Prints (black & white)
  • Prints (colour)
  • Projected digital images (PDIs)

Prints should be mounted. (A standard size of mount is 40×50 cm, but members may submit smaller mounts.)

If submitting digital entries then each member should submit a CD containing only the competition entries and no other files. If more than two files are contained on a CD, then the competition secretary may select two files at random to go forward. Alternatively send them by email to the Internal competitions Secretary Dave Vallis at davevallis63@gmail.com.

File Naming

File names should include the membership number followed by the image title (e.g. 026_EarlyMorningLight.jpg) Images should be submitted as jpegs with sRGB colour space. They should be no wider than 1400 pixels and no higher than 1050 pixels. Each image must be entirely the original work of the member.

Notes:

  • Naming: Please use three digits for your membership number. For example use 026 and not 26. This will help images to display in the correct order.
  • Website: We ask that members who enter internal Society digital competitions will allow the Society to use their images for this web site or for other external competitions that the Society may enter. Copyright of photographs will always remain with the photographer. We will assume that you are agreeable to this unless you advise us otherwise.

Special Competitions

The Summer Challenge takes place near the start of each season and is for a set of photographs on a specific theme.

  1. Photographs must be taken no earlier than the designated date (tbd).
  2. Enter a maximum of three images to be digitally projected; they do not need to be thematically linked.
  3. Only one image will be chosen as the winner.
  4. The rules for naming your images will be advised at a later date.

The Kodak Cup is open to pupils from local schools as well as St Andrews Photographic Society members. Entrants must submit three digital images that are thematically linked, as well as a fourth image that shows the images in relationship to each other (triptych).
