Competitions
Taking part in the club competitions is probably the best way to improve your photographic and picture editing skills. Our competitions are in several formats:-

Colour prints
Always presented mounted in card, it is the most satisfying way to present images. Although most of us use A3 prints, a good A4 image can often be remarkable effective, especially when presenting still life subjects.
The mount for colour prints must be no larger than 500mm x 400mm, the image title and your name must be on the back of the print.

Monochrome prints
Arguably the most difficult technique to master, it pushes both editing and printing skills.
The mount for colour prints must be no larger than 500mm x 400mm, the image title and your name must be on the back of the print.

Digital Projected Images, ( DPIs )
By far the most popular method of showing your work. It avoids all the hassle and expense of printing and mounting images. This is the best way to start competition work and can be used for both colour and monochrome images.
DPI images must be jpegs   1400px wide x 1050px high.
How to name the files:- The file name must be of the format:-
Your image title; Your Name.jpg
keeping the spacing and spelling of Your Name exactly the same for each entry.

The email address for submitting both print titles and DPI files is:-
competitions@stourbridgeps.co.uk

In the event of a competition being oversubscribed, the third entry in your set of three will be treated as ‘the reserve’ and will be discarded by the competitions secretary.
