In all Divisions there are a total number of ten (10) competition nights. The maximum competition nights allowed a member can enter, and not loose points, is eight (8). If eight (8) nights are exceeded, the penalty is the loss of the highest point score for a previous entered competition. The Minimum nights allowed to enter to be eligible for year end awards is three (3).
The following points apply to all competitions in Prints and Projected Images. Competitors with the highest points for the year in each class of competition, will receive an appropriate award. Same scores given by the judges will be considered ties and each will receive the same number of points. Points earned in one class may not be transferred to another class.
Prints or Digital Images given the same score by the judges will be considered ties and each will receive the same number of points. Points earned in one class may not be transferred to another class.
Judges will be selected by the Second Vice President. Each member is expected to judge two or more times during the year and is encouraged to find a replacement if unable to judge. If a member judges twice in a club year in the same Division (Print or Digital), the judge is eligible to enter a double entry in competition in the same Division.
All questions about the interpretation and application of these rules may be deferred to the Executive Board by the Competition Committees or by an individual member.
