Some of the competitions will be either given a set subject or theme to follow. In this case, the submitted image should be the member’s visual interpretation of the subject. This interpretation will be taken into consideration by the judge as well as the compositional and technical qualities of the picture.

Interpretation as to the whether the image fits the set subject or theme will be at Judges discretion. If, in the opinion of the Judge, the image does not meet the set subject or theme criteria it is likely the image will be marked down.

If the competition has no set subject or theme it will be defined as an OPEN competition. In this case the member has total discretion on genre, subject matter, colour, toned or monochrome.
