WELSH SALON OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2022 RULES

Principle
There shall be an annual exhibition of prints and projected images to be known as The Welsh Salon of Photography. It shall be open to any member of a club which is affiliated to the Welsh Photographic Federation or the North Wales Photographic Association.
 
What The Welsh Salon Is
The Welsh Salon of Photography is intended to be a showcase of the best work from photographers of clubs affiliated to the Welsh Photographic Federation or the North Wales Photographic Association.
It is not a way to gain points for FIAP, PSA or BPE awards.
 
Dual Club Membership
Entrants who are members of more than one club may enter work for one section as a member of one club, another section as a member of another club etc, or all of the sections as a member of one club, as they wish.  The entries for an individual section must not be  split between clubs. All the clubs represented must be affiliated to the WPF or NWPA.
 
Closing Date
The closing date for entries will be the date of the WPF AGM, 13 March 2022.

· The mounting board should be 50cm x 40cm and no larger; failure to comply will result in the disqualification of that print.
· Use of a SINGLE backing board is encouraged but it should be no thicker than the print mount as this will not allow it to be framed, should it be selected.
