Guests may bring one print for critique. Dues-paying members of the Seattle Photographic Society may submit two prints for critique and scoring. There are no restrictions on subject matter, technique, or digital editing, as long as the image meets the basic requirements for all submitted images.
We will break up into groups of 4-7 people to discuss the prints. Written comments will be provided to the maker for each print.
Prints should be at least 4"x6", and should be matted or mounted so that they can stand up on an easel. (This doesn't have to be anything fancy or permanent.) The size of the mat should be at least 8"x10". We will have some foam core boards and artist's tape you can borrow to temporarily mount your prints if you are not able to do it ahead of time.
Prints will need two cards taped to the back for judging and comments. Download this form to your computer - Print Night Card Blanks. (You should only need to download it once.) Type in your info, print it out, and tape to the back of each Print.
Please submit a digital copy of your image to the appropriate category before the meeting. This step is encouraged, but not mandatory. Judging and voting for People's Choice will be done at the meeting. But the results will be displayed on the website just as they are for Projected images, so any images that are not uploaded will show a grey square in these results instead of your image.
