We also use the online entry system for Print entries. This automatically records your print entry titles and is used to produce the results record. You should also download and complete Print Title Labels and affix them to the back of your prints before handing in.

 

PRINTS

 

Members can enter up to three prints in their assigned section i.e. Novice, Intermediate or Advanced for each print category of the exhibiton (See opposite).  PROVISO: If three members or less enter any Novice section, then these Novice entries will be combined with the Intermediate section for that competition, and the section renamed as General.

 

Please be sure to complete your entry and hand in your prints before each closing date since late entries cannot be accommodated.

 

If possible please also upload a digital copy of your print, this will assist us greatly in managing the entries and in the publication of results. Note: The image size and details are exactly the same as that for PDI competitions.
