Please note there are a few changes to various things.
1) The Landscape competition in October is for a new trophy called the 'Liz Davidson' PRINT trophy.
This Landscape competition is for the Liz Davidson PRINT trophy and is for New Zealand Landscapes/Seascapes only. Two prints per person can be submitted. (digital files of the prints are also to be submitted) Digital images of Landscapes shown throughout the year will be eligible for re-entry in print form for the Annual Landscape Trophy. The competition is ungraded but points will be awarded as per normal competitions. The Trophy will be given out in 2016 at the Annual Dinner to the Top Landscape Print.
You may enter the open category if you have no landscapes, but the maximum is three images as per usual. So if you enter two Landscape Prints, you may only enter 1 Open digital image.
2) Moving up a grade. To be eligible to move up a grade, or for an award at the annual prizegiving, competitors must have entered at least five competitions throughout the current year.
