Entries Due 11/1/17 Print Circuit competition is open to all members of UVPC who do not enter in any other photo club in Wisconsin. Each UVPC member can enter one Color and one Monochrome print. There is no limitation on subject matter or processing. Specific requirements follow:

A. The circuit will consist of two (2) divisions – Color and Monochrome.

B. General Guidelines:
1. A member of a participating club may submit only one (1) print in each division.
2. Each club and print owner must assume his/her own risk of damage to prints.
3. It is understood that each club will handle the prints with the utmost care.
4. Subject matter in both divisions is open.
5. Post production processes of any type are allowed.
6. Images submitted in previous Print Circuits are not allowed.

C. Prints submitted:
1. Size of paper should be between 8 – 12 inches on its longest dimension. The other dimension is
limited to a maximum size of 8 ½ inches. Therefore, the largest image size that a print may
be is 8 ½ x 12. Paper may be trimmed to remove excess.
2. Square prints are limited to a maximum size of 8 ½ by 8 ½.
3. Images that are larger than 8 ½ x 12 or 8 ½ x 8 ½ will be disqualified. Images submitted on
paper larger than 8 ½ x 12 will be disqualified.
4. Prints must be loose – no mounting allowed.
5. Monochrome prints are defined as “representations in black & white or in varying tones of only
one (1) color”. Prints that include a second color will be disqualified.
6. Each print must have TITLE, photographer NAME and CLUB listed on the back of the print.
7. Being a member of more than one WACCO affiliated club does not entitle the entrant to submit
more than one (1) color print and one (1) monochrome print.

D. Showing and judging of prints:
1. All prints must be shown to club members at a regular or special meeting.
2. Participating clubs will judge all prints except those entered by their club.
3. Each print should receive a score from 3-10 based on technique, composition and interest. An average score would be 6.

E. Awards:
1. Medals will be awarded for First, Second and Third Place based on the overall scores.
2. Honorable Mention ribbons will be awarded based on the overall scores. The number of HM
ribbons awarded will be determined by using 10% of the total number of entries.

Start planning now. If you have questions, I am the representative for UVPC for the Print Circuit entries.
