Competition Rules

1. The BCG Annual competition is open to Life Members and Members only. Affiliates and Honorary Members are not eligible to compete.

2. Members must compete in their grade. (If you have not been graded unfortunately you are not eligible to enter.)

3. Acceptable media for the annual competition are photographs submitted as prints and DPIs (digitally projected images). The APS definition of a photograph is an image taken on a camera. Only images that were primarily generated using a camera are eligible for entry to the print and DPI competitions. Computer generated imagery (digital art) is eligible only for the AV competitions. In addition to this, members may also submit audio-visual (AV) presentations which are broadly governed by the Interclub AV Rules (refer later section for more information).

4. The Annual Competition is made up of six subjects:
• Pictorial Monochrome
• Pictorial Colour
• Nature
• People
• Creative / Experimental
• Social Documentary / Photojournalism

5. A maximum of four images can be submitted in each subject of the Annual Competition. These can be made up of any combination of prints and DPIs as long as the number does not exceed a total of four images.

The following combinations are acceptable:
• 4 prints, 0 DPIs
• 3 prints, 1 DPI
• 2 prints, 2 DPIs
• 1 print, 3 DPIs
• 0 prints, 4 DPIs

6. If a member has submitted more than 4 entries across prints and DPIs in any subject, the Competition Directors will have the right to remove enough entries to meet the guidelines above. If the error is not discovered until after the judging has been completed, entries will be removed in order of highest score until the guidelines have been met.
