Bernard Hinton (Coate Water), Series and Creative Competitions

November 1, 2018 at 19:30

Three more competitions judged by yourselves.

Here is the basic information for each competition from our rule book page;


The “Bernard Hinton” Competition

Medium:           Digital only
Category:         Combined
Judge:            Club Members
Trophy:           Pewter Cup

This is named after a past member of the club who took a great interest in photographing Swindon’s Parks and gardens.

The digital image must have been taken in the nominated Swindon park or garden during the preceding or current club season, the venue of which will be published in the programme each year.

Series Competition

Medium:           Prints & Digital
Category:         Combined
Judge:            Club Members
Trophy:           Prints (cup), digital (cup)

A series is defined as a sequence of images with some form of link discernable by the viewer.

Prints:  Each series of related images may be of 3,4,5 or 6 prints.  (These may be presented all on a single mount or individually.)   There is no restriction on mount size provided the mount is not so large that it would be difficult to display for judging. (Members are asked to act reasonably as regards this issue).

Members will be responsible for laying out their own prints for the competition in such a way as they intend the series to be viewed.

Digital:  A sequence of between 4 and 8 images submitted together and named using a sequential 1 digit number starting at 1 followed by a space and the series title.

A black divider image will be provided at projection time to start and end the sequence (these will be images sequence 0 and 9).

(For projection we will use Faststone software, for a period of 6 seconds each, with a Transition Effect of “Fade In and Out” and an Effect Duration of “5:Longest”. )

The Creative Competition

Medium: Digital only
Class: Combined
Judge: Club Members
Trophy: Creative Trophy

Creative photography is an extension of conventional photography into creative art. They are images that have been modified during or after exposure above and beyond simple manipulation. The purpose is to stimulate creative thoughts and encourage experimentation with new ideas.

There is no limit to when the components of the image were taken, however, the creation will have been constructed for the current season.
