2.    Photographs taken at and during the Convention will be eligible including those taken during official pre or post Convention tours.

Sections 1 and 4 - Open These sections cover all subjects including Pictorial, Nature, Photo-journalism and so on. Photographs of people who were in no way associated with the Convention belong in Sections 1 and 4.

Sections 2 and 5 - People of the Convention These sections are confined to photographs of conventioneers and any people assisting in organising, entertaining, performing official duties and the like. While this section will be judged pictorially, due consideration will be given to the value of the entry as a record, and also for any photo-journalistic emphasis.

Digital Images: A maximum of four images may be submitted in each of sections 4 and 5. Images may be e-mailed to  Jeffrey Venning  jwpmvenning@hotmail.com   Each image file should be submitted in sRGB format with files no larger than 1500kB, sized at a maximum of 1600 pixels  x 1200 pixels.

Prints: A maximum of four prints, from 20 x 25 cm to 40x50 cm, monochrome or colour, in any photographic medium, may be submitted in each of sections 1 and 2 mounted on 16 x 20 inch mounts. A maximum of four un-mounted prints, maximum size of 20cm x 25cm, monochrome or colour in any photographic medium, may be submitted in section 3.
Several worthwhile book prizes will be awarded in each section. As many entered images as practicable will be offered for reproduction in IMAGE.

Entries close on 30th April 2017 and entries will be held for APSCON 2017, where the digital images will be screened and prints (all if possible) will be displayed. Entries will be returned within two weeks after the Convention. A panel of approved judges will be appointed.
