There will be a year-end competition for honored images in each class. This competition will be announced at the annual Award meeting in March. All images honored under the guidelines set forth in paragraph 7 during regular or special competition will qualify for entry in the year-end competition. At the year-end competition the judge will select the best 1/3 (or top 10, whichever is less) of the entries in each class. Also, the judge will select the “Print of the Year” in each category.
For year-end competition, a member may have a qualified (honored) image cropped so long as it does not exceed the image size limitations in these rules. The image may not be retaken or otherwise altered after qualifying in previous competition.
