  • Entrants must have 1 unique/new image in this round.


Prints must be mounted on a backing board measuring 16″x20″ (41cm x 51cm).3. The image size is your choice, but as a guide A4, 8″x10″ would be a reasonable size.

In the digital rounds pictures will be judged out of a maximum of 5 points. 

In print round one images will be judged out of a maximum of 10 by one Judge.

In print round two images will be judged out of a maximum of 10 each by 2 Judges.

You can get images mounted in any ‘framing shop’.Liam Manning located at ‘Picturesque’, Unit 4, Enterprise Center, Bishopgate Street, Mullingar will do this.Liam will charge 9 euro for a print fully mounted on a backing board and a window mount, less for a print on backing board only.

Say it is for the Camera Club.
