NCPS are entering this competition, so come along and give us your support!
Rochdale & District Camera Club are holding their Ted Colman slightly different PDI Knockout Competition on Tuesday 21st May 2019 commencing at 7.15pm at the Sacred Heart Church, Kingsway, Rochdale, OL16 5BX
The rules are simply these:
1. Each club attempts to stay in the competition for as long as possible!
2. The competition will consist of three rounds plus a final round to decide the winning club.
3. The clubs enter 13 digital images with a maximum of 3 images per worker and each image will only ever be projected once.
4. From their bank of 13 images, each club will have preselected 4 images to compete in round one.
The idea is to play the images like a ‘poker hand’ – they could play your best in the early rounds to ensure that their club continues in the competition, or possibly take a chance on qualifying and save their best until last!
5. In each of the three rounds, the judge will mark each image out of 20.
Our judge this year is Tillman Kleinhans ARPS, EFIAP/b, DPAGB, BPE2* from St Helens.
6. After each round the club marks will be totalled and the lowest scoring club/s will sadly drop out (the number of clubs dropping out in each round depends on the number of entrants and will be announced prior to the start of the competition).
In the event of two or more of the lowest clubs being on the same mark, then the club that has a higher single image score out of their 4 entries would go through – then 2nd highest scores etc etc. – if this was inconclusive then both clubs would go through to the next round.
7. The scores from each round are not carried forward and deal only with the round in question.
8. Those clubs remaining in the competition will then select a further four new images from their bank for round two and the same procedure will be followed.
9. There is a pause between each round for a chat and whilst the qualifying clubs select their next round slides.
10. Those clubs who make it into round three will select a further four images leaving them with just one image remaining.
At the end of this round the two highest marked clubs or any ties will have their one remaining image projected for the judge to decide the eventual winner.
