  14. Save as varied above, all entries shall be accepted subject to the same rules and conditions as those applicable to entries submitted to the Society’s 2015 International Print Competition.
  15. Submission of any entry implies acceptance of the rules and conditions of entry and failure to comply may result in disqualification.

Photo book of members’ work

The Group hopes to publish a photo book of members work in 2016, and may wish to include images from this exhibition in the publication (as well as transparency and hybrid process images). Should we proceed with a book please ensure that you have available

  • A digital file of each entry to enable reproduction at A4 size (maximum long side 297 mm) at 300dpi, saved as a TIFF (or failing that a maximum quality/minimum compression JPEG) file using an Adobe RGB colour profile; and a brief summary of the process by which each entry was created (for example ‘Taken on Fuji Velvia 120, hand printed on Cibachrome on a Durst AC707 enlarger’ or ‘taken on Ilford FP4, processed in ID11, printed on Fomabrom’)
