Why do I have to enter print images on the web site

The reason is many fold; it reduces the work involved of entering details after the competition, improves the accuracy of the entries (no ambiguous titles to resolve) and allows for easy recording of results. The process uploads the details of your images to your Point Score results automatically. The entry form MUST be printed and submitted with the Print on the competition night. You do not need an entry for for Digital images

The information helps the club identify the various brands and cameras that our members use together with their computer operating system. This useful when planning training sessions and looking at member benefit deals with suppliers. It also lets members know what other people are using. To update your profile go to members?
