Mini Panel

Presentation: Images: Your panel should be made up of  6 prints,  A5 size (i.e., approximately 15 cm x 20cm / 6 ins x 8.5 ins). Please stay close to this size so that all panel entries are a similar size.

Mini Panel Arrangement

The arrangement of the images is important: they should present a pleasing composition in two rows each row having 3 images. You are not expected to ‘window mount’ your images. Here ‘mounting’ means sticking the images to a piece of card in order to display them as described.


Mini Panel Mounting

Glue your prints to an A2 sheet of card (approx. 400 mm x 600 mm // 16 ins x 24 ins). It should not exceed approximately 15cm x 20 cm/6ins x 8.5 ins.

If your layout is all landscape the card size may need to be larger. 
Mock-ups are advised!

Mini Panel Label

Stick a label on the back of the mount which gives: your club number or initials if you don’t have a number; panel title; your category (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).

Mini Panel Text

Include a short (100 words max) note about your panel – the idea and thinking behind your choice of theme, your reason for choosing specific shots, etc... and your panel title. This can be presented as a separate sheet to allow the judge to read it and view the images. Identify this with your club number, panel title and your category.
