LIST OF RULES FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION
1. The photos entered must have some connection with hillwalking (the club preferred) and be taken not earlier than 1 year prior to the competition.
2. An entry can be one of the following: -
(a) Any size of print from a 35mm slide, or from a film negative, or from a digital image. The entry number and description should be written on the back of the print. e.g. “3 Ben Nevis from the west”.
(b) A digital image file. The understanding is that the image should be an original (or cut from an original) and not be digitally altered to any great extent. Digital images can be provided on any optical or flash media, or e-mailed as attachments. Digital images should be named as - if possible. e.g. “3-Ben Nevis from the west.jpg”.
3. All entries to be provided to a committee member by the published closing date.
4. A member can submit a collection of no more than 5 entries.
5. There shall be two awards :-_ one for the best photograph, and one for the best group of 3 photographs from a submitted collection. These need not necessarily be awarded to the same entrant, but could be.
6. The competition to be judged by an independent judge, appointed by the committee.

So basically, submit 1 to 5 photos – email attachments would be best, but CD, DVD and SD media are OK. If emailing, make sure you send the original full resolution image, so one at a time is best. Label your emails accordingly.
There are 2 prizes – Brian Coull Trophy for best photo, Norrie Trophy for best collection (3 from 5).
