Macro and Close up Competition rules

The following rules are specifically for the Close-up and Macro competition and are in addition to the Club’s General competition rules.

1.  A macro image is defined as an image whose subject is reproduced to at least 1:1. That means that the image on the camera sensor is the same size, or bigger, than the real-life subject.

2.  A close-up image is defined as any image that shows the subject closer and in greater detail than would be seen with the naked eye.

3.  No animals should be harmed or distressed, nor any habitat damaged in pursuit of an image for the competition.

4.The final decision as to whether an image fits the definition of close-up or macro will be at the discretion of the Competition Secretaries.
