  • Open EDI – Overall we came First with 83 points, 5 points in front of second

End of year competition 2022

Entries for our end of year competition are due on Tuesday 25 October 2022. This is a best of images entered throughout the year, members select from their previous entries to enter the end of year competition sections:

  • Two images for Open Print (prints from 2020 and 2021 are also eligible)
  • Two images for Colour EDI
  • Two images for Monochrome EDI
  • One image for Creative EDI

The entry must have been entered into a 2022 monthly competition (see below regarding prints) and in the same format. Colour EDI and Monochrome EDI images were entered in the Open EDI and Set Subject EDI sections, Creative EDI images were entered in the Creative EDI section.

As our print sections were interrupted during 2020 and 2021 and we did not have a print section in the end of year competition for those years, these prints are eligible for the 2022 end of year competition.

Select your entries through the Competition upload system. As well as selecting your print entries in the upload system, also ensure that your print entries are placed in the print box on Tuesday 25 October 2022 at our November competition night.

The subject for the President’s Trophy is “Happiness” with your entry due on Wednesday 15 November 2022, this is to be uploaded via the competition upload system.
