 Three way split competition

This competition is to encourage members to photograph different types of subject from their usual preference.

This Seasons competition is for PRINTS with the set subject theme of "Someone or Something Moving".
the entries are made up of three distinct images (PRINTS or PDI as appropriate).
The images (PRINTS or PDI as appropriate) are to be displayed together as a 'panel

The three images can be separate Images which have a connection, or in the form of a "Triptych"

Here is one definition of a 'Triptych':

The three panels of a triptych can vary; sometimes they may flow together to form a single unified scene, or they may each function as a separate image; but usually there will be a strong sense of visual coherence.
Ways to achieve this include a continuous horizon line or background, a unified palette, consistent handling of the subject matter, or a progression or continuity of theme or subject.
The word triptych has its origins in the Greek 'triptykhos' meaning three-layered.


  1. Each entry shall consist of three images (PRINT or DPI as stipulated by the Competition Secretary) on the defined set subject.  The three images will be viewed together and should have an obvious connection with each other in addition to satisfying the set subject.  The nature of the connection is up to the photographer, and could be based on  content, colour, mood or anything else considered appropriate. 
  2. All PRINTS and PDI entries shall conform to the requirements set down for league competition rules.
  3. Enties may be all colour or all monochrome, or a combination of both.
  4. None of the images should have been previously entered in any other competition.  They can, however, be used in future club competitions.
  5. The images will be viewed and judged together, as a set, by either the members present or by an external judge.
  6. For print entries each of the three prints should be identified with the entrants name plus an optional title.  In addition should have the word  'left', 'centre' and 'right' - being the relative position of each print - as viewed from the front by the judge and the audience.
  7. PDI entries shall be submitted according to the web entry requirements or as defined at the time by the Competition Secretary.
