Competition Rules

Haregill Lane – by Tom Lehman

Each month we hold a themed competition with each member allowed to submit three entries. the subjects are hopefully designed to stimulate members to get out and take images they might not otherwise do.

The competitions are judged either by fellow members or by outside judges – not necessarily photographic judges in the conventional way but locals with an interest or knowledge of the subject in question.

From the entries received the judge picks the best entry from each entrant and then picks the top seven entries, ranking them 1st, 2nd ,3rd, Highly Commended and three Commended. Points are awarded from 5 to 1 and at the end of the year there are trophies for the top three photographers. Double points are awarded for the print competitions.

The rules are very simple –

1. Standard Digital Competition Rules

Please read through our competition guidelines. David Mason, MPC Competition Coordinator, is happy to help out if you have any questions.

The results of each competition will be presented at the second MPC meeting of the month.
