LPA Print Battles

This is an inter-club competition.

It is held over three legs in May, June and July, with the finals each year in October. We call each of these legs ‘home rounds.’

The entry consists of 16 prints, which can be mono or colour (15 for the entry and 1 for a tie-break).

Usually, each home round consists of three clubs going head to head with each other; the winning club is awarded 5 points, the second 3 points, and the third 1 point.

Home Round Clubs must notify the organiser and the clubs of the fixture date and judge by the end of March.

Competing Clubs must send an entry form listing their titles to the organiser by the end of April.

The points are tallied over the three legs, and the clubs with the top marks go to the finals in October, details of which are usually released in late August.

At the finals, all clubs will present the same images and once again go head-to-head with each other. The judge will award scores to each print at the finals, and a winning club will be determined.

Finals are held at Nettleham Village Hall near Lincoln.


Final Date: Sunday, 13th October 2024 

Judge: Heather Burns ( Triple Master Craftsman, Judge and Panel Member with the Guild of Photographers )
