Instruc­tions on how to enter here

The rules are the same for Print and PI.

NCPP has two types of com­pe­ti­tion Pro­jected (monthly) and Prints for Peo­ple Choice twice a year. See the news let­ter for specifics.
• All of our exist­ing image comp rules apply to both Print and Pro­jected Sub­mis­sions, except as noted below.
• Print and Pro­jected com­pete for the same 3 places, Best of Show, 2nd and 3rd.
• Limit of 30 Pro­jected images per meet­ing can be entered.
• Time limit for judg­ing each image that is rea­son­able and will get us done by 10:45 at the lat­est.
• Use a lap­top for the pro­jec­tion of images, and 25″ mon­i­tor for the judges view­ing and audi­ence.
• Mem­ber can enter only a total of two images per month. Two in Print for People’s Choice or two in Pro­jected. But not the same image in both.
•Pro­jected image may be re-entered under the same rules we have now. In that if the image did not score a min­i­mum of an 80, it may be re-worked and re-entered in the same cat­e­gory it was orig­i­nally entered. If it scored an 80 or above it is con­sid­ered retired and can­not be re-entered.
• People’s Choice will remain the same as we do presently, dis­play­ing an image ready to hand to the cus­tomer, and voted on by NCPP mem­bers. No Pro­jected entries for People’s Choice.
