6 Print Panel

The principle of this competition is to produce a set of six images that fit your “Statement of intent” and arrange them into a hanging plan of 6 images in a row or 2 rows of 3. The member should select a theme or subject for their panel that they are interested / passionate about.

  • Enter your 6 images in the order you wish to display them within the submission form along with your “Statement of intent” and you hanging plan. (Link provided below.)
  • Members will vote for the 3 panels that they feel have met the criteria (image quality, coherence as a panel, does the panel truly reflect the statement?)
  • The 5 panels with the highest votes will be asked to print and mount their panels and bring them along on the 23rd March and talk about them with the members.

The winners will be informed on the 3rd/4th of March to give them time to print and deliver the following: –

  1. 6 mounted prints
  2. A hanging plan showing what order the images should be hung
  3. A printed version of their statement
