You may submit to any or all categories, up to three photos in any one category (so a maximum of nine images). In order to raise the prize values, for this competition there is an entry charge of 25p per image. Images must be submitted as prints, between 6x9" and 10x15" in size (less than 13x28" including mount) and can be from film or digital. Following comments from the judge last year, we thoroughly recommend you mount your entries - Dave can provide advice on this.
Prizes of Amazon vouchers of £30, £20 and £10 will be presented to the best three photos in each category. Submission deadline is Tuesday 3rd April 2007 Friday 13th April 2007. Judging will be by an external judge in late April or early May and we expect to mount a display of the winners in the Library in May.
Since we intend to display at least all the winning prints, both in the Library and on the OUCC website, while retaining copyright, as a condition of submitting you agree to grant the club non-exclusive rights to display the images in relation to the competition itself and to the OUCC. All such reproductions will be duly credited.
Whilst we will take every care with your material, the club cannot accept any responsibility for loss or damage - so please don't submit your only copies. All submissions must be marked, on the reverse, with your name, phone number, email and postal address, together with the category - remember that the prints will be mixed randomly for judging, so each one needs to be individually marked. Obviously, be careful not to use a pen that's going to show through: you might prefer to use sticky labels rather than run the risk of damaging the print - especially important for inkjet papers with tend to be fairly absorbant. Remember that the quality of the print itself could influence the judges. Will will return all entries in the internal post, or they can be collected, whichever you prefer.
