• The photos must be mounted on the usual club mounting boards available at the club (16 x 20 inches)
• They must be mounted using a Bevel Cutter i.e not glued to the front of the mount.
• On Tuesday 2nd of October we will hold a workshop for mounting prints if anyone is not sure how to do it
• You must have your name and the photo title on the back of the mount in the top left hand corner (so we know which way up to hang it!)
• We will also need a digital copy of your photograph as we will be able to show them on a slideshow. Please resize the photo as for league entries i.e. 2400 pixels long edge and 240 pixels per inch(dpi).
