Plymstock Camera Club competitions can be grouped into three types, Trophy, League and external.



  1. Trophy Competitions


Throughout the Plymstock Camera Club Programme there will be advance notice of each Trophy Competition including the entry date (usually two weeks before the event for externally judged). The Trophy competition will include the subject name (e.g. Landscape) and this should be self-explanatory.The competition will further describe the format of the competition currently either Print or DPI (Digitally Projected Image).Each season every member is given details of the required (currently – see website for full rules) mount size of Prints (400mm x 500mm) and maximum size of DPIs (1080 pixels high x 1920 pixels wide). Trophy entries each attract point scores (see Website for detailed rules) for entry and titling, and success down to 4th place.


NB A DPI in portrait format (or landscape) cannot exceed 1080 pixels high.



  1. League Competitions


Throughout the Programme (given to each member and published on the website) will be the 8 League Competitions.Four for Prints and four for DPIs.Each competition is designated by name such as PC1, PC2, PC3, PC4 or DPI1, DPI2, DPI3 and DPI4. Each league competition has two sections.Firstly a set subject (e.g. something ‘blue’) that is detailed on the Programme and secondly an ‘own choice’ (any subject). Each section permits two entries from a member. League entries each individually attract point scores (see Website for detailed rules) for entry and titling and, success down to 4th place.The member/s with the highest cumulative scores win the respective Print League and DPI League trophies. The member with the best total of both wins the Photographer of the Year Trophy.



  1. External Competitions


In recent years Plymstock Camera Club have keenly entered both the Tamar Trophy (inter-club monochrome print trophy) and the Gerry Trophy (inter-club DPI trophy) with some success.There is interest among the members and committee to extend this to other external competitions and members will be informed and requested to contribute to these in due course.Format and date requirements for external competitions will be made known in good time to allow all members to get involved.
