2018/19 Set Subjects

We have four competitions with no set subject. Members may enter images on any subject they choose in colour or monochrome.

The two set subject competitions this year are ‘Building for the Future’ for PDI and ‘‘Three prints on a theme” for Prints.

‘Building for the future’  this could be a person or animal actually building something or a piece of architecture that reflects the future. This is a PDI competition.

‘Three prints on a theme’ – Here you will have three prints judged simultaneously as a panel. Each print should not exceed the usual,mounted, dimensions of 500mm x 400mm. The panel should have a common theme but the subject matter is open so it can be any theme you wish. Because each panel of three images will be judged at once we are allowing members to enter up to two panels e.g. six images in total. Each panel will receive a single mark
