Petersfield Photographic Society


Competitions 2019-2020

Petersfield Photographic Society is affiliated to the Southern Counties Photographic Federation and participates in the SCPF annual league competition for prints and projected digital images (PDIs). All the current year’s competitions are listed below. At the end of the season, the club selection sommittee chooses sixteen ‘seal’ images (eight prints and eight PDIs) to compete in the SCPF league. The images will then be judged against entries from up to six competing clubs in the same league as Petersfield. The two highest-scoring clubs will move up a division whilst the two lowest-scoring move down.

During most competition evenings, images are assessed and scored by a visiting judge. The maximum mark awarded is 10. Scores of 8½ and above are awarded a ‘seal’ and the author’s name is announced. At the end of the season, the two best-scoring individuals in the standard classes move up and the lowest-scoring in the advanced move down.

The selection committee also selects six prints and eight digital images from ‘seal’ winners to represent the club in the annual SCPF exhibition.

You can find out more about the league on the Southern Counties Photographic Federation’s website.
