* Audio Visual 2018 *
 

The competition is for digitally produced Audio Visual sequences only, using a single screen with a sound track.

An AV production should predominantly consist of a series of still photographic images, the majority
 of such images being the original work of the author.

The aim is not to display a collection of single photographs, which may be excellent when
considered individually, but rather a sequence of pictures which blend well with each other

It is preferred that whilst sound and vision need not necessarily start together, the original ending
of the music is preserved rather than an arbitrary fade out.

Although the club will not instigate any hard and fast rules as to the length of any AV show,
it is strongly advised that such a production should be no longer than six minutes duration, or 60 to 70 images, with around four minutes or up 50 images being the optimum.

Each member may enter up to 2 Audio Visuals – please mark which is your A & B choice, as in the event of this competition being over subscribed, we would cull all B entries, making this fair to all members.

If you require further assistance, please ask Dave or
Peter Taylor who will endeavour to help you.

The overall winning entry will be awarded the "Best Audio Visual Trophy "
plus collect points towards " Photographer Of The Year ".

1st = 10pts - 2nd = 8pts - 3rd = 6 pts

The choice of subjects is open with no special categories for entries.

The Managers reserve the right to refuse to accept any entry which they consider,
in their absolute discretion, to be undesirable or unsuitable for the competition

The entrant will be notified of this and the entry returned
