Discovery Day Challenge Rules

Discovery Day Challenge

Digital projection competition

A full explanation of the rules can be found in the Information Booklet.


The competition organiser has discretion to exclude images if the total entry exceeds 80. He/she will use the members’ rankings on their entry slips to determine the images to leave out, namely image number 4 will be the first taken out then 3rd etc. There are no ranking slips for the Clash of Titans for which separate rules will apply. Two pictures that differ simply because of manipulation such as cropping, cloning and filtering should be deemed to be one image.
