COMPETITION RULES 2015-2016

The Rules were amended by the May 2015 AGM to allow for either two or three rounds for the Shuffell Trophy.  The ability to hold 2 or 3 competitions in each season helps to give flexibility to the planning of the programme, and encourages members to produce more competition-quality prints and projected digital images.
