Entering International Salons  
Devizes Camera Club encourages members to enter their work in external competitions. 
The simplest way to do this is by entering digital projected images (DPIs) in international salons (exhibitions) recognised by the Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique (FIAP). 
There are three English salons between now and the end of 2018 which would be particularly suitable to enter, especially for members who are new to external competitions.  They are:
Northern Counties International Salon  DPI Classes: Open Colour, Open Monochrome, Nature Travel. Image Resolution: 1400px wide x 1050px high. Closing Date: 8 October 2018.
Smethwick International Salon  DPI Classes: Open Colour, Open Monochrome, Nature. Image Resolution: 1600px wide x 1400px high. Closing Date: 4 November 2018.
Yorkshire International Salon DPI classes: Open, Nature, Travel.  Image Resolution: 1400px wide x 1050px high.  Closing Date: 3 December 2018.
You can enter up to four images in each class by uploading them online.  It is often easier to get images accepted in international salons than to win Devizes Camera Club competitions, so why not give it a go?  You could enter images that did well in club competitions last season, or images you are thinking of entering this season.
In addition to the kudos of having your entries accepted against international competition, the most successful salon entrant in each calendar year from the club
will be awarded the Ryder Rathband Trophy
