The Sussex Federation this year are having their PDI competition specifically as ‘England during the pandemic. This information about the competition is for all members thinking of entering.
Note that in addition to your image files we require (see section 9 below) a short description (between 50 and 100 words) that describes the image in relationship to the pandemic. The focus needs to be on the image and your vision of that image in relationship to the pandemic.
It is not possible to upload this text directly using PhotoComp, so please send this to the selection committee separately by email to firstname.lastname@example.org making sure you refer to the title of each image so we can match up the description to the title .
Also, you need to add the location into your title when uploading the image to PhotoComp, for example: “Queue for the Bank – Chichester Town Centre”.
Here are the rules from the Sussex Fed.
