SCPF Print and PDI Championships 2015

We invite you to enter this year’s SCPF Print and PDI Championships which will be held on Sunday 22nd March 2015 at Southampton Camera Club.

Both the print and PDI competitions will be run on the same day with two categories in each competition – an Open Competition for large clubs and a Small Clubs Competition. The interpretation is as for the PAGB’s Cup:

LARGE CLUB and SMALL CLUB does not mean number of members but relates to your inability to make up a satisfactory entry, which complies with the rules about number of PDI, number of photographers, etc. 

You should decide for yourself which competition you wish to enter.

There are no significant changes to the format or rules this year. The rules for this year’s competition are attached.
The closing date for this year’s competition is Sunday 1st March 2015.
