It’s Competition Time – Thursday 17th November

It’s that time of year when we will be holding our photographic competition and to award the best finds in 2011. Judging takes place by you – the Members, so make sure you come to the club on Thursday 17th November to review the entries and cast your votes.

The Chairman’s Artefact Trophy is awarded for the Best Presented Find, whilst the Jeff Betts Trophy is awarded for the Best Find. Entries must have been brought up in 2011 and of course declared to the Receiver of Wreck (evidence required for the item to be judged).

The Photographic Competition has a number of trophies, so you need to select your best pictures and chose which category they will be entered for. Details of image format, where to send them and by when will follow.

The five photographic categories are:

1. Underwater Wildlife Photo – at home or abroad;
2. Social Photo – should include Branch member(s), but doesn’t have to be a dive trip;
3. UK photo – of anything, but taken in UK waters;
4. Wreck photo – any wreck, anywhere;
5. Best Overall Photo – selected by the Committee.

Entries for the Find trophies should be brought to the club on Thursday 17th November and displayed on a table. Members present will vote by a show of hands for each trophy.

Images for each category in the Photographic Competition will be projected on Thursday 17th November and members present will be given a voting slip to select their winning image in each category.

Please speak to Jonathan Markwell, Branch Secretary, if you have any queries on the rules.
