Entries close: First meeting in November
The competition is of four prints, colour or monochrome, comprising one each of:
andscape / Seascape: The land [or sea] must form the main subject matter. People or buildings [or other objects] may be included but must take on an inferior point of interest.
Human Interest / Genre / Portrait: Must be the photograph of a person. The photograph may be a formal portrait or an image of a person at work or play. The person must form the main centre of interest.
Contre-Jour: This is a photograph taken with the main light source to the front of the camera. The subject is typically defined by rim lighting. The side facing the camera must show some detail and not be a full silhouette
Pattern and/or Texture: The subject matter is to consist of strong regular shapes arranged into a pattern or clearly defined textures. The shapes should have a degree of abstraction but may be of recognisable objects.
The photographs will be judged individually. Points will be awarded as set out in Rule 14 and totalled. The competition is non-graded and the images must have been taken in New Zealand. Prints entered into this competition cannot be entered again in any future special (non-monthly) competition. Prints must not have been used in any other competition. Prints entered in this competition must not be more than 2 years old. Print presentation must conform to the general competition rules.
