Small is Beautiful We will let you know which theme attaches to which competition when the calendar is finalised and released in the Autumn
No changes are planned in respect of Prints
Our current DPI sizes are smaller than those used in the external competition we enter as a club and the committee are considering rule changes for next year. That is competitions entered after 1 January 2013. However if you are preparing images now for next year please be aware of the change and work on larger images. The final rule changes will be announced later in the year and ratified at the AGM. For the time being we suggest that you work anticipating a new size of 2000px on the long side of the image
