Four judges (or one outside judge), scoring on a scale of 1 – 10, will judge – with a final maximum being 30 – the lowest score is discarded. When a judge has to score his/her own entry, he/she awards his/her image the lowest score (1). Images scoring 22 or higher receive applause, and are eligible for selection into the annual Interclub competition. Members whose prints and/or slides have been selected, are requested to retain their work until submission in October every year. The Western Cape Interclub Competition takes place at the end of October and is hosted, in turn, by one of the photographic societies in the area.
