All prints submitted for club appraisals and competitions and for external competitions must be mounted. The mount size must be 50cm x 40cm. The size of image within the mount and the colour of the mount are at the discretion of the photographer.
Mounting provides a level of protection to the print during storage, handling and transit and uniform mount sizes reduce the risk of damage to other prints. The club will take reasonable measures to protect prints, but the necessary handling during the judging, appraisal and display processes can result in signs of wear and tear on the prints.
There should be no information on the front of the mount that identifies the image author. The author's name should be clearly shown on the rear of the mount, with a title if appropriate.
