Competition Rules

The rules for the monthly competitions are very straight-forward:

  • All Photographs submitted must be the copyright of, and must have been taken by the member entering them.
  • Interpretation of the theme is up to the photographer but do bear in mind that if the relationship of an image to the theme is not immediately obvious, it may affect how it is seen and judged.
  • All photos must be printed - home or commercially made prints are acceptable.
  • The maximum size for all prints is A4 (portrait or landscape).
  • If a print is smaller than A4 then please mount it on A4 card or paper for easy display and framing. Other than this, all prints must be unframed and unmounted.
  • Bear in mind that prints will be displayed in a mount around 4mm less than A4 
    on all sides. Take this into account especially if you have detail on the edge of the images that could be obscured.
  • Unless specified otherwise, prints may be in colour or black and white.
  • The maximum number of entries per member is two.
  • The same photo must not have been previously entered for a club competition.
  • Photos must have no watermarks or added text unless specified otherwise.
  • If there is any possibility of doubt regarding the orientation of the image, please clearly indicate the top of the image on the back so it can be displayed properly.
  • Images which make the ‘Top 5’ will be retained for display at the POTY event at the end of the year.

    Carnkie Camera Club is committed to the principle that images should be the original photographic work of the creator and with this in mind the submission of images that have been entirely computer-generated or have material elements generated with AI or similar technologies will not be accepted for club competitions.

    The club will largely trust in the integrity of its members but in certain circumstances may request further evidence which may include original (RAW/JPG) files and/or EXIF data, accepting that such evidence may in itself not be definitive. The final decision in any case of dispute will be made by the committee

All competitions will be judged by a ballot of members or by an appointed judge.
