Because of Covid we were unable to have the Print competitions this year. The Committee have decided that for one year only our AE will be PDI based. We are now asking members to enter up to 9 Mono PDI’s and 9 Colour PDI’s. You can either enter images from the internal competitions or from elsewhere. The only stipulation is that once an image has been entered into the AE it
may not be entered again in any format in any subsequent Club Competition, Outings Competition or Annual Exhibition respectively. An image which has been entered in a Club Competition may only be entered in the same season’s AE in the same format as it was entered in the Club Competition. Please get your AE entries in to Brian (email@example.com) on or before Friday 17 April. If you are just using your PDIs from the rounds you will still need to resubmit them to Brian.
