Club Project

The set subject this year is Photo-Editing a Chosen Image.
This is a chosen image that all members can alter and change however they want using photo-editing software. Extra images can be added to the picture and these can be either ones you have taken yourself or ones you have obtained from elsewhere. An exercise in imagination!

Naming & Sizing

General Information & Rules


Below are some general competition rules but see COMPETITION RULES for detailed information.

For All Competitions


Digital Images

All digital images must be 1400px x 1050px.
Please email all correctly named and sized digital entries to CompRMPC@gmail.com To ensure that images remain at the size that you have prepared them, put all images inside a folder and compress (zip up) before emailing. Remember to include your name, Member No. and whether you are in the A or B Group (if relevant).
Please clearly state which competition your images are for to ensure that they are entered into the correct one.

Prints

The title, your Member No. and whether you are in the A or B Group (if relevant) should be clearly written on the BACK of the print and handed to Audrey Weekes, the Prints Secretary, by the specified date.
If you know you will not be able to come to the club on the specified hand-in date, all entries can be handed-in earlier as long as they are clearly marked which competition(s) they are for.

Hand In Date

Unless specified, all entries should be handed in 2 weeks or more before a competition.


Club Qualifying Competitions


For A Group Entries Only

For the 5 Club Qualifying Competitions, the A Group can enter 2 x Prints.
2 x Digital entries can also be entered but, if there are so many entries that the evening would run late, only one entry may be shown.
Alan Gould, the Digital Secretary, has to be clearly informed of either which is your first choice to be definitely shown or which one is to be omitted, otherwise he will decide arbitrarily.
The Digital Competition will consist of either all entries or just the first choice entries.


Audio Visual Competition Rules

Please note that the KCPA has changed some of the rules for entries into the KCPA Audio Visual Competition. We are not changing our current rules until we can establish exactly what our equipment can successfully project.
If you are planning on entering the KCPA Audio Visual Competition, please visit www.kcpa.co.uk/the-kcpa-audio-visual-competition/ for full details of the new size and what other formats are now allowed.
