Our first competition night, 19 January 2021, is the special evening of two themed competitions, the Set of Three and the George Walsh Trophy

Each competition works as a single competition open to all members.

We don’t separate the entries into the four different classes which apply on League Competition nights.

Traditionally these are print competitions but of course they will now be online as everything else is. 

In the first half of the evening we will judge the Set of Three (So3).

In the second half we have the George Walsh trophy for documentary and photojournalism.

Set of Three

[from the Handbook]

Members submit three printed images that have a single theme, subject or concept of their own choice. All three images are viewed and assessed by the judge at the same time.

The images can be mounted on separate boards or one large one, but the mounting will not be judged.

A maximum of one of the images may have been entered in a previous society competition.

Moving the So3 online means that we have had to work out some additional steps for you.

Short Version

(see under the So3 Notes tab for full details)

  • Use PhotoEntry to upload your images (from Wed 6th to Wed 13th Jan)
  • For the Set of 3 competition you can upload up to 4 images
  • The first three must be your set of three images. They must fit within the normal sizing of 1920px wide by 1200px high. They do not all have to be the same size. You may also, for example, have one portrait and two landscape oriented images.
  • The upload system will ask you to give a Title for the Set.
  • To make the sequence clear, you should name the first three individual images Image 1, Image 2, Image 3
  • We strongly recommend that you add a fourth image with the name Combined to show how the panel would have been arranged if you’d been able to use physical prints. See example below. This also has to be a jpg of max 1920w x 1200h.
  • To help you create the combined image, Competition Secretary Gordon Brown has created a PowerPoint template. But if you prefer to use other software, such as Photoshop or Affinity Photo, that’s fine.
  • If you don’t feel able to create this combined image please upload your three separate images then send us an email and we’ll create one for you. Details under the Notes tab.

The George Walsh Memorial Trophy

[from the Handbook]

This trophy is awarded to the winner of a print competition on the theme of documentary/photojournalism, in memory of long-standing WPS member George Walsh.

  • Documentary photography provides a straightforward and accurate representation of people, places, objects and events. It is used to chronicle events or environments that are significant and relevant to history, as well as those that show everyday life.
  • Photojournalism, associated with street photography, employs images that tell a story, usually news-related, in a creative, entertaining and informative format.
