Internal Competition Rules
The club holds various print and projected image competitions amongst members throughout the year. All members can participate. Whilst the competitive spirit is of course amicable and leads to many fun evenings (!!), we have a comprehensive set of rules for member’s reference as published below.
The rules were updated for September 2020 here.
The rules were updated for September 2019 here.
The rules were updated for September 2018 here.
Since the August 2012 revision, members should be aware that the changes to the RPS and PAGB rules for AV now allow 3rd party content to be included to AV submissions, and we have aligned our AV rules in accordance with that. However, when now using 3rd party content in their submissions, the club felt the need to draw member’s attention that they themselves should be aware of the need to have obtained appropriate copyright clearance, and that the club cannot be held accountable in any way for any consequences of not obtaining appropriate licencing.
Members should however note that Mike Reed has a PRS licence covering use of PRS registered artists and use of their music obtained from a CD. Mike has kindly offered that members can if they wish add his name as co-author so that their submission is covered under his licence regarding copyright.
