PTO 2016 Digital Photo Competitions

Competition Entries

For 2016, PTO are inviting digital entries via the form opposite or on CD/DVD.  This ensures that all delegates have the opportunity to enter with minimal cost to themselves. Entries are invited for submission at any time with a closing date of 30th November 2015 NO EXCEPTIONS.

Delegates may submit any number of entries with the first one being free of charge, however subsequent entries will be charged at £5 or 5 Euro per additional image. Categories are PORTRAIT / WEDDING / OPEN.

If submitting by CD or DVD, you must indicate the category and include your name on the face of the disc. If you are submitting into different categories please put your images into different folders with your name and categories clearly marked on the disc. Your disc should be accompanied by any remittance due with your entry.

All photo competition submissions in the wedding category must be taken on the day of the wedding. Any other wedding images must be entered into the ‘OPEN’ category. No names to appear on the front of images and please supply border-less images.

All images will receive a critique by our judging panel in Lanzarote but the finalists will have been pre-selected with top quality prints made by ‘One Vision’ at no cost to the delegate. Prints will be taken out to Lanzarote and judged by a panel made up from the speakers and displayed during the week.

All entries must be 300dpi jpgs and to 16 inch on the longest side. We we will add sight-line and borders so please submit images only as requested (no names, no sight-lines and no borders). Our laboratory sponsors ‘One Vision Imaging’ will print all finalists images to the same high standard at 20″ x 16″ and mount them on lightweight foam board. Any entry which ignores these basic rules will be eliminated from the competition.

Superb trophies – sponsored by ‘The Societies’ will again be presented to the winners and runners-up together with cash redeemable vouchers from One Vision Imaging. All short-listed entries receiving merits.

Finalists will be given the prints and their trophies to take home after the awards.

Inspiration Art CompetitionAfter the huge success of the Master Classes conducted by Llewellyn Robins in Egypt in 2011 where delegates were required to seek out artistic images – the PTO organisers have decided to continue with this competition for PTO 2016 to encourage delegates to see things differently. Delegates can create a piece of ‘Inspirational Art’ at anytime during their training week and submit the image or images at the end of the week for viewing and judging. A major prize will be awarded to the creator of the most inspirational work of art provided by one of our sponsoring companies!
