Hawarden Photographic Society reserves the right to reject any image which does not meet the entry criteria or if it is deemed offensive to members or the wider public audience.

In the event of dispute, problem or query about the interpretation and implementation of these rules it shall be the responsibility of the competition secretary, or, on appeal, our committee.
