Two entries are acceptable at each competition from each class. If too many entries are received then the Internal Competition Secretary will make the choice as to how to limit the entries.
In order to maximise the number of entries accepted during the year from Advanced and General classes the competition secretary will decide on the number of entries from each class.
This may not follow the normal Advanced then General routine. It avoids the situation where a few entries are obtained from the class that was due to have 2 images each shown and the other class only enters 1 image each therefore the total number of entries is small and insufficient for an evening’s competition.

The competition secretary will therefore adjust the entries to ensure at least 6 PDIs and 6 Prints are shown through the year for each fully participating member.
