internal competition with the subject 'Open'. While it's anticipated
most of the entries will be digital, prints are also welcome.
Marks for each image are awarded out of twenty and members will
be notified of their scores. The winner of the trophy is the
club member whose image is judged to be the best overall; there
are two 'Highly Commended' awards for the runners up. Up to four
images per member may be entered on any subject; for submission
details please see the Competition Entries
section. Digital images have to be submitted two weeks prior
to the competition date to ensure the judge has sufficient time
to review the entries prior to the meeting; mounted prints may
be brought on the night.
Berwick Photographic Society Challenge Trophy
Match-an-Image competition against another 'local' club is held
at the North Berwick Club's venue in January or February. Forty
digital images are shown by each club as they battle it out to
match their images (whether images match or not is at the decision
of the judge; heckling is allowed!). The club with the highest
total score on the night wins the Challenge Trophy. In 2013 this
was a new format for a competition so here is the way it works.
Both teams operate their own computer, projector and screen so
that images can be selected then projected and viewed at the
same time alongside each other. Teams displayed their images
alternately with the image put up by the first team requiring
to be 'matched' by the second team. Thirty seconds is allowed
to put up a matching, or attempt at a matching, image. One point
is awarded to the team displaying the first image. If the team
displaying the second image is judged to be displaying a matching
image then a point is awarded to them for successfully matching
the image. An additional bonus point is awarded to the team judged
to have the better image of the two but if there is no match
this bonus point goes to the team which put up the first image.
of the Year Trophy
internal competition with the subject 'Open'. This competition
is held in April and the winner of the trophy is the club member
whose image is judged to be the best overall image of the season;
there are two 'Highly Commended' awards for the runners up. Images
submitted for the earlier competitions can be re-submitted with
a maximum of four images per member. Entries (digital only) must
have been taken in the previous 12 months and should be submitted
not later than 17 days before the date of the competition. For
submission and photo sizing please see the Competition
section. Images should be sent as attachments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or via DropBox.
