Competion Rules

Photo competition rules are consistent with those of FMC – winners of our competition are automatically entered into the Interclub and the FMC competition. Entries for all categories must be taken after 1 Jan 2019.

Members can enter up to 3 entries in each category.

Please use descriptive names on each shot.

The definition of a “human element” includes people or anything else that is man-mind such as a track, hut, bridge, ice axe etc. However, if the “human element” is very small and not a major feature in the photo e.g. a track marker or distant hut, then it would count as “no human element”.
