Rules

Entry is open to all photographers, amateur and professional, worldwide. There are two sections, Open Monochrome and Open Colour.

Entrants may submit up to FOUR prints in each section. Prints entered from the United Kingdom may be MOUNTED or UNMOUNTED with a maximum unmounted size of A3 (42cm x 30cm) or mounted size of 50cm x 40cm. Prints entered from outside the United Kingdom must be UNMOUNTED with a maximum size of A3 (42cm x 30cm). Prints exceeding these sizes will be neither judged nor returned. Packages should be clearly marked on the outside "Photographs for exhibition only : no commercial value".

Photographs that have been accepted for previous Edinburgh International Exhibitions or which are so similar as to be indistinguishable from previous acceptances are ineligible. Such an image converted to Monochrome can not be considered a different image. Each image must have a unique title. Images entered must be entirely the work of the photographer. Composite images are permitted provided all component images meet this requirement. For the avoidance of doubt, use of images from any other source including, but not limited to, royalty free image banks and clipart are not permitted.

Prints must be clearly marked on the back with the title, and the name and address of the entrant. The orientation of these details will indicate the orientation of the print. These details must be exactly the same as entered online.

If you are submitting from the UK / Ireland / Channel Islands or Isle of Man you may choose to have your prints returned, there is an option to select on the online entry form, and extra cost will be incurred. Entries from other countries cannot be returned. If entrants wish to collect their prints from the organisers, there is also an appropriate option to select. Such collection must be made by 31st October 2020, otherwise the prints will be destroyed. The original packing will be used to return entries, and entrants must ensure that their packaging is adequate to be used for their return.

PARCELS: These must reach the Edinburgh Photographic Society, Box 500, 196 Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4AT, Scotland not later than 17th June 2020. Entrants living or working in this area may find it convenient to hand their parcel directly to the address to avoid postage costs – details of how to find it are here. Only entries sent to this address will be accepted.
