My Master Piece Competition - the Gallery specified for this competition alternates each year.
and may also change at short notice.

It will either be The National Gallery in London: visit the website: www.nationalgallery.org.uk

or the Tate Modern Gallery : visit the website: www.tate.org.uk/

VENUE CALENDAR

2017 - 2018 SEASON: The National Gallery
2018 - 2019 SEASON: The Tate Modern
2019 - 2020 SEASON: The National Gallery

and so on.........

The Objective of this competition is to select a piece of work from a "Master" Painting that inspires you, then using your imagination create your own interpretation of it photographically.
We are not expecting, nor wanting, a faithful reproduction! 

Take a look at paintings on display at the current gallery.  (see The Venue Calendar above)
Then select a painting that inspires you. 
Using that as a starting point (it must be a Master Piece from this gallery), use your imagination to produce your own interpretation of the painting photographically.

**Each member may submit up to two entries, each for a different Master Piece.
The image showing your interpretation must have been taken using the photographic process, and all elements of this final image must be the sole copyright of the author.

This is a Projected Digital Images competition only. 
On the evening, the original Master Piece will be shown followed by your interpretation of it which will then be judged. 
(The National Gallery have given consent for us to do this!)

**Note: After submitting the images using the new "Web Entry System" (see below) A link to the original Master Piece file chosen from the above gallery should be emailed to the Assistant competition Secretary.
(email this link to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your name, competition, and any other relevant details)

Entries should be submitted in line with other PDI (Projected Digital Images) Rules ie:

Projected Digital Images shall not exceed 1400 pixels in width,
nor 1050 pixels in height, regardless of whether they are landscape or portrait format.

The digital file shall be in jpeg format at 8-bit and incorporate the sRGB colour space.
The digital file should not exceed 500kb in size.

Naming your Files:
Each file shall be named in a similar fashion as the SFN (Structured File Name) format used in League Competitions
(But use - either 1 or 2 instead of "A" or "B" – followed by an underscore, then the member’s name, followed by A HASH SIGN, then the title of the masterpiece and followed by the "Equals Sign" and either "C" for Colour or "M" for mono.
(do not use punctuation in the title)

(eg. 1_Fred Bloggs-Smith#My Title=C.jpg).

Unless otherwise instructed - Images shall be submitted to the Assistant Competition Secretary by using the new "Web Entry" system
no later than seven days prior to the competition.
See the article "Preparing for PDI Web Entry" for more information.
Any image exceeding the specified criteria and/or dimensions or file size will be rejected
