Competition evening
Each set will be projected - first showing the title and thumbnails of the complete set in the order in which each image file is numbered.

Each individual image will then be projected slowly for consideration. The time that each image is shown and the time allowed for marking is pre-set.
There will be a pause for you to mark your score out of 10 on the score sheet before the next set of images is projected.
Your score should reflect your opinion of the complete set not just on the individual images.
Each set should have a theme and the images should display well together – photographic and artistic qualities and how well the images illustrate the chosen title should be taken into consideration. No authors will be shown on the projected images or the score sheet.
The result should be announced the next week.                    Any queries - Please contact the Competition Secretary
