    • Annual Prints

All competitions are judged by qualified external judges

PDI, AV, and Panel competitions have a single category

Top of the Club (TOC) & Best of Both (BOB) League Style

  • At each round there is a “set subject” and an “open category” of competition
  • Members can submit up to three images in total for each round.
    • This could be one in the “open category”, and two in the set “subject” category -OR- two in the “open category” and one in the “set subject” section
    • You can choose to enter just two pictures, one in each category
    • You can also choose to enter just one image (either one “set subject ” or one “open category”) but this will reduce your chances of winning any of the annual competitions (TOC PDI, TOC Prints, and BOB)
  • The best score from the “set subject” and the best score from the “open category” at each round are used to determine the score for that round
  • TOC PDI will be the combined scores from all of the PDI rounds
    • TOC1, TOC3, & TOC5
    • All members compete in a single class for PDI
  • TOC Prints will be the combined scores from all of the Print rounds
    • TOC2, TOC4, & TOC6
    • There are 2 classes in Prints: Standard, & Advanced
  • Best of Both will be the combined scores from all PDI & Print rounds
    • TOC1, TOC2, TOC3, TOC4, TOC5, & TOC6
    • There are 2 classes in Best of Both: Standard, & Advanced
      • Best of Both Standard = Combined TOC PDI score + Combined TOC Prints Standard class score
      • Best of Both Advanced = Combined TOC PDI Score + Combined TOC Prints Advanced class score
