JUDGING AND TIMELINE

Judging will be carried out in two stages. The first stage of Jurying will be a review of all entries as digital images submitted by email without photographer’s names attached (blind), and those to be exhibited at the show will be selected. Arts Centre Hastings will then notify everyone by email as to the status of their submission and invite successful entrants to submit their prints and identifying labels. The second stage involves the jury reviewing the curated prints and selecting the prizewinners. Awards will be presented on Opening Night. During the course of the Show a ballot will be conducted amongst visitors for a People’s Choice Award.
