Choice of mount size & colour
Printing your image
The size of you image should be the maximum possible that fits the size of paper you are using.
The aspect ratio (shape) of the image should be chosen for the best composition of the elements within the picture.
Always ensure there is some picture area outside your chosen image shape.
Mounting your print
Where to fix your competition label
The label must always be fixed on the back, on the top left hand side.
This is so that when the print is placed on the viewing easel, it is clear which way up it should be.
