Rules

1.(a) The Competition shall consist of two rounds.
(b) All competing clubs shall take part in Round 1 and shall each enter TEN (10) slides, of which no more than two slides shall be from any one photographer and no more than two may depict a natural history subject.
(c) One slide from each dub shall be shown sequentially and anonymously to a panel of three judges until ten slides from each club have been projected.
(d) The highest marked TEN clubs from Round 1 shall proceed to Round 2.
(e) In the event of a tie which would result in more than 10 clubs qualifying for Round 2, the following tie-break will be used: each tying club shall add together the marks of its highest and lowest-scoring slides, and the club with the highest total shall prevail. Should there still be a tie, the next highest and lowest scores shall be taken into account until all but 10 clubs are eliminated.

2.(a) Each club entering Round 2 shall enter 15 further slides (i.e. slides which have not been used in Round 1), of which no more than three slides shall be by any one photographer and no more than three may depict a natural history subject.
(b) The marks for the two rounds shall be added together. The club with the highest total shall be the EAF Champion Club and the two dubs with the highest totals who have not pre-qualified will represent the EAF at the National Finals of the PAGB Championship.
(c) In the case of a tie for any place being contested, the clubs concerned shall submit a further five slides for judging, of which not more than two shall be by any one individual and not more than two may depict a natural history subject.

3. Any slide entered in a previous PAGB Club Championship at the National Finals is ineligible for re-use, but the re-use of a slide previously used only in the EAF competition is permitted.

4. Photographers may submit work via one club only and they must be bona-fide members of that club. In this respect the integrity of competing clubs is implicitly relied upon.

5. Any club member whose work is used by an EAF Club in the EAF Slide Championship and Selection Competition must ensure that his/her work is available to that club in the event of the club being invited to represent the EAF at the PAGB National Slide Championship in any given year.

6. Slides must be correctly spotted, titled and identified with the club name. Please number the slides to accord with the title sheet. Please ensure you tick the "not for web use" column if relevant.

7. The EAF cannot accept responsibility for any damage or loss.
