Prints must be matted or mounted so that they can stand up on their own, but not framed or covered by glass. Each print must fit the following size restrictions:

  • Small Prints have a minimum print size of 24 square inches (4x6) and a maximum print size of 96 square inches (8x12).
  • Large Prints have a minimum print size of 80 square inches (8x10) and a maximum print size of 480 square inches (16x30).

All prints have a size restriction (including mat) of no smaller than 80 square inches (8x10) and no larger than 30 inches wide or 24 inches tall (to fit on our display board). In the case of multiple images, such as a triptych, add up the total number of square inches per print.

Prints will need a couple cards taped to the back for judging and comments. You can fill in and print these out ahead of time using this template Print Night Card Blanks.


Print Categories

A member may submit two images distributed among the categories of Small Color, Large Color, Small Monochrome, or Large Monochrome. A monochrome image is defined as an image with a single global color or tone, plus white. It includes traditional black and white images, sepia toned images, or images with any other single color.

Prints may be made using wet chemistry, printed using a home computer and printer, or commercially prepared. There are no restrictions on subject matter, technique, or digital editing, as long as the image meets the basic requirements for all submitted images.



In the Print Division, if two prints are submitted on an Assignment night at least one (but only one) must be submitted as an Assignment. The other print may be submitted into any of the other regular Print Categories. Two non-assignment prints may not be entered.
