Theme Competition Rules


Theme Competition

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.

Theme Competition Images entered for this competition should reflect the theme selected by the committee.

  • The 2017-18 theme will be “Street Photography
  • Maximum of four DPI images per entry.
  • Any image that ranks 1st, 2nd or 3rd shall not be entered into this competition again. Any image entered into this competition may be used again in one subsequent year.
