Online Entry System is for the use of members of Smethwick Photographic Society



Help is available at the club for members that may not have access to a PC or are initially unsure of the entry process.


Just bring along your entry details/images and the SPS PC's can be used to submit your entry.

NOTE: You can change your entry at any time, up to the time the server closes, using the email login details that you used when first submitting your entry.

You can download a complete set of folders for all SPS Merits and other Competitions by clicking on the ZIP image above.

When you download the zipped file simply unzip (Extract it) to your own PC. Once unzipped please view the README document contained in the folder to discover how this can help you.

We now use our online entry system for both Print and PDI entries. The date that the server opens and closes for submissions is noted opposite, and is generally the first day of the month in which the competion is scheduled


See a full set of rules HERE


PLEASE NOTE: Competitions have to be prepared well in advance of judging therefore we are not able to accept or process late entries for any reason.



Our projection background is black, please DO NOT fill empty space or add large borders to your PDI images, however a thin outline border is acceptable.
