Rules

All entries must include:

  • your full name and membership number
  • an image title
  • a little background for the shot. For example: What made you press the shutter release? Is this photo part of a larger project, a photo essay or simply a grab shot which tells an amazing story by itself? Did you have this shot in mind when you set out with your camera or was it a lucky spot?
  • EXIF data where possible

Entries are limited to:

  • one image per Documentary group member per round
  • images taken within three months of the closing date
  • must have been taken by the member submitting
  • new images ( no re-submissions)
  • jpeg format in RGB mode, the higher the resolution the better.  

Your entries should be sent to dgcompetitions@rps.org

The winner will be selected shortly after the closing date by the Doc Committee.

All images will be put into a Documentary Group gallery on the RPS website and some selected for publication in Decisive Moment.

All images remain the property of the photographer but RPS Documentary Group reserves the right to use the images on the RPS website, social media and in the Documentary Group e-journal 'Decisive Moment'.

So get snapping and good luck.
