Competition Rules


When you join the Society you are given your own competition number which is prefixed by an A or B depending on which section you are put in by the Committee.


When submitting your Prints or DPIs (Digital Projected Images) please make sure your name or any other form of identification is not present for the judge to see.


Past winning entries should not be submitted in any future internal competitions.


An entry form must be filled in for each competition clearly marking your competition number, the competition name and number and the title of each image. You can download the entry form by clicking HERE. (Word or PDF)


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.
