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!
How well an image fits the theme;
Sharpness: Sharp where it needs to be, unless not intended to be by the photographer.
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.
