Introduction to Judging

Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a Societies’ Print Judge? Or what makes a photograph award-winning material? Well, we are now giving you the opportunity to find out! 

During this unique and informative day we will cover:
The qualities we look for in professional judges
The rules and procedures of panel judging
The 10 Elements of an Award Winning image
Etiquette and elocution
The importance of positive judging 

In addition to the above topics you will have the opportunity to sit in the hot seat yourself and take part in the ‘mock-judging’ of physical prints during our afternoon session. This will ensure you leave feeling 100% confident in your new abilities! 

The Societies is working in conjunction with labs all over the country to bring you this class and as an added bonus you will be guided around the lab to deepen your knowledge of the printing process. This is a wonderful opportunity for those thinking of entering The Societies 20×16? Print Competition to see the quality and professionalism of our recommended labs first hand. 

This course is not part of the requirements needed to be considered as an approved Societies’ Judge and you do not need to hold any current qualification with The Societies to take part.
