Prints must be within the specified size range and be mounted according to instructions.
Prints must be mounted on a rigid backing, either foam board or mat board and MUST NOT be framed.
Matting is optional but must be a single mat.
No double mats are allowed.
The print, including its rigid backing, should not be thicker than 3/16″ (or 5mm) plus the print.
The mounted print must have one dimension no smaller than 8″ and must not exceed 17″ x 22″ overall.
These constraints exist so that the prints will sit properly on our print viewing equipment for judging, can be easily handled by our committee and mounted for display at our presentation meetings.
The print must be clear of any material that could cause damage or stick to another entry. Prints that have any tape or any other sticky material will be ineligible and not judged.
Note: the print team will disqualify any print that does not meet the above requirements.
Up to 4 prints may be entered in each of the three print competition. Subject matter is photographer’s choice.
An image (print or digital image) entered into any RHCC Competition must be substantially different than any image entered by the same maker in the same or in a previous RHCC Competition, regardless of format (print or digital) or colouring or toning. Members may request the competition team to confirm the eligibility of images prior to the submission deadlines.
Images submitted for Print Competitions must have been created within the past 5 years (after September 1, 2012 for the 2017-2018 season).
A digital version of the print must be uploaded to the competition webform by the deadline.
All prints submitted for competitions must have standard labels on the back.
We will have labels at the club meetings or you may print your own and download the template here:
