Local, UK and Other Competitions
The Guernsey Photographic Club encourages members to enter external and overseas competitions and to this end elects a club member to act as Competition Secretary. The club is a member of the Southern Photographic Federation (SCPF) and the name and contact details of the Competition Secretary are listed on the (SCPF) website, (southerncountiespf.org.uk) this enables clubs organising competitions and exhibitions to notify the Competition Secretary of forthcoming events.
The Competition Secretary keeps a list of these events and brings them to the attention of club members, handing out entry forms and collecting entries from members wishing to enter competitions. They are then posted to the relevant event organisers with arrangements made for their return after the competition. Postage is paid by the Club.
These are some of the competitions/exhibitions that the GPC Competition Secretary deals with :
Guernsey Salon of Photography
Inter-club with Jersey Photographic Club
Inter-club with Spectrum
Inter-club with Prism
Most competitions/exhibitions have print classes such as Open Mono, Open Colour and Nature, which have a maximum mount size of 50cm X 40cm and a minimum image size of 23cm on its longest edge. Nearly all competitions/ exhibitions these days now include a digital image class where images are submitted as digital files online or on a CD-R/DVD in .jpg format, with an image size of 1600 X 1200 depending on the projector used to display the images. All this information is given on the entry forms for the various competitions/exhibitions.
