We have a very serious issue regarding the titling of images which has had detrimental impact on Club performance. Some of our members are changing titles of their images, entering them under different titles on different occasions. This is totally unacceptable for several reasons but most importantly, it has meant the Selection Committee can make mistakenly select the image twice which results in it being disqualified as happened last year. This is unfair to the other Members whose work has been selected but is then unused because of other Member’s carelessness. Last season in the League PDIs we were relegated because we had inadvertently submitted the same image twice but with different titles. Fortunately this season we have come second in League 2 and and so will resume our rightful place League 1 for next season.
Another problem that we have found that one Member is using the same title for different portrait images. This is not acceptable as we can select an image but the one we receive from the Member is different, which as you can imagine causes considerable confusion.
We also also that image titles are kept short – many national and international exhibitions physically limit titles to character count and long titles are problematic, especially when it comes to setting up the Annual Exhibitition Catalogue
We simply must ask for all Members’ co-operation to avoid these problems and the difficulties it has caused the Selection Committee whose job is anyway difficult and whose members give up their time for the benefit of all Club Members.
It is quite simple. One image – one title: one title – one image.
