Print Preparation for Competitions

  • It is expected that all Intermediate and Advanced members will mount their prints (usually window mounted)
  • Prints should be mounted on a board no bigger than 500 x 400
  • It is recommended that you use White, off-white or black mount board.
  • As well as mounting your print you must submit an electronic copy of your print by midnight on the Sunday prior to the competition.
  • Labels must be attached to the back of your mount, top, left-hand side. They can be obtained from the competition secretary on club evenings. You can print your own labels on standard A4 paper and glue them to the mount.
