The following Set Subjects have been decided upon for the 2013 year. The criteria for entering prints and images remains the same as in the past. Refer to the following articles for help on submitting images.
- Enter prints and slides for competitions and evaluation evenings
- Resize digital images before submitting them
- Submit digital images for competitions and evaluation evenings
As you will notice, the set subjects cover many aspects of photography, viz. macro, architecture, people, sport, timed-exposures and abstract. Of course, it is entirely up to you as to how you interpret the subject, but please take note that an obvious deviation from the set subject might well be disqualified in competition. Please challenge yourself as far as the set subjects are concerned … make images specifically for the chosen set subject … don’t try and find anything in your archives. In any case all images submitted for competition and evaluation should have been taken during the previous year!

Competition Evenings consist of a Set Subject section (as above) and an Open section – each member may submit a maximum of three prints and three projected images for a maximum of six entries per member. In both prints and projected images, you may choose whether to submit one set subject image and two open images or two set subject images and one open image.
The Open section is there for you to show those images which do not fall under the Set Subjects … they might be images that you prefer making, i.e. wildlife, landscapes, etc. Please try your utmost to take part in competitions and evaluations … it’s no use having a brilliant camera, and not using it!
Review Evenings – due to time constraints each member may submit no more than two images in total for evaluation. In other words;
- 1 print and 1 projected image or
- 2 prints or
- 2 projected images.
NOTE: Depending on our progress on the evening, it may be decided to cut evaluation short after the first image from all submitting members has been evaluated.
