Annual Exhibition 2021

The Annual Exhibition 2021 might not look the same this year but it will take place for PDIs only which will be displayed using a virtual gallery, as the Spring Exhibition. We thought it necessary to advise you all of how the system will work and to ensure all members are aware of the requirements.

Each member can enter up to 6 PDIs on any subject size 1920 x1080 jpeg Colour or Mono. Jeff will open the uploading system in the usual way.

Judging of the PDIs. Entries will be divided into 3 Classes, please note that members’ PDI classification will apply, ie if you are Advanced for Prints and Intermediate for PDIs, you should enter Intermediate class:

  • Club
  • Intermediate 
  • Advanced

The list of cups and trophies awarded for PDIs can be found below. If you require further advice or clarification, please do not hesitate to contact Peter Rocchiccioli or Lorna Brown via

PDI judging will follow a 2-stage process.

In the first stage of judging, the 3 PDI classes will be judged separately. The judge will select the three class winners (that is for the Sayers Trophy, Birch and Turner Cups) and award Certificates of Merit for up to 10% for each class.

In the second stage of judging, the held back PDIs from all 3 classes will be grouped together and the judge will select an overall winner for the best PDI, plus Certificates of Merit, under each of the following categories and in the following order (the 10 Miles from Chichester award is decided by the Selection Committee):

After the judging has taken place the Selection Committee will undertake a selection of the images for installation in the virtual gallery. Everyone is guaranteed at least one image in the exhibition. The final number installed will depend on the total number of images entered in the exhibition and the limits of the virtual gallery.
