ICPA Annual Competition 2018

Entries close 26th June 2018

The  ICPA Annual Competition will be open for entry through the ICPA website through your competition secretary:


Full details and rules are available on the website,  but to summarise:

There are three categories:

  1. Open Colour Prints
  2. Open Monochrome Prints
  3. Open PDI’s

Your Club can enter between 4 and 10 images into each category. Each will be marked out of 20. The score for your Club is the sum of the best scores from FOUR DIFFERENT AUTHORS. Thumbnails of printed images ( 1600 x 1200 sRBG) must be submitted for print entries.

We are using a new programme, PhotoEntry, to handle entries this time. All Clubs receiving this e-mail are signed up for PhotoEntry. This programme automatically loads images into DiCentra, meaning much less manual work for us.

Closing date for 2018 entries will be announced shortly
