Last Call for IOTY entries and online scoring of October EDI

This week’s October competition night is the last opportunity to submit your EDI images and prints for the Image of the Year competition (IOTY). The website entry forms will close on Thursday morning.

Please bring your IOTY prints to the club and ensure you have submitted your IOTY entries on the Club website by this date. 

You can now nominate any entries you submitted in the October competition as part of your IOTY entry.

Also if you haven’t already, please have a go at the online scoring trial for the September colour EDI sections.  This allows you to preview the images and score them

Use these links to access the scoring page. (please logon first)

September A Grade Colour

September B Grade Colour

September Advanced Grade Colour

 

Online scoring is done by entering a score from one to five for each image.  Use this as a guide for scoring:

  1. Give this score if you consider that the image should be rejected (e.g. Coloured parts in a Monochrome entry, a motor car in a Nature entry.)
  2. if the image is below the standard of the grade being judged
  3. if the image is OK but has no notable aspects
  4. if the image has above average aspects that make it a contender for a merit or honours
  5. if the image has more than one outstanding aspect and would be a contender for honours or Judges Choice

This activity can only be done on a computer with a keyboard – iPads, phones or any other touch device are not suitable.  use the number keys along the top of your keyboard.

The scores will be announced at the next competition meeting.  Please complete your scoring before the competition night.

Online scoring by members of EDI competitions

Dear Members

To add more member involvement with EDI competitions, we will be trialling a member scoring activity. 

Please note that this is additional to, and does not affect the normal judging process – your entries will be commented and given awards by the nominated judge as usual.  This is a voluntary activity. Just ignore the message if you don’t wish to participate

You will receive an email message soon that invites you to participate in the online judging of a competition.  Each member will be sent an invite to judge Colour EDI for their own grade. For your own entries, the score you give will be ignored, and replaced with the average score from all other scoring participants. 

Online scoring is done by entering a score from one to five for each image.  Use this as a guide for scoring:

  1. Give this score if you consider that the image should be rejected (e.g. Coloured parts in a Monochrome entry, a motor car in a Nature entry.)
  2. if the image is below the standard of the grade being judged
  3. if the image is OK but has no notable aspects
  4. if the image has above average aspects that make it a contender for a merit or honours
  5. if the image has more than one outstanding aspect and would be a contender for honours or Judges Choice

This activity can only be done on a computer with a keyboard – iPads, phones or any other touch device are not suitable.

The scores will be announced at the next competition meeting.  Please complete your scoring the day before the competition night.

Check entries uploaded and closing date extended to Monday night

Today the website suffered a system fault which has caused images uploaded on Sunday 12th August, between 2am and 5pm to be damaged.  

If you uploaded any images during this time please return to each entry form and upload your images again. Delete the existing entry and re-upload the image. Copy the title before deleting to save a bit of typing.

The data surrounding the images is present so it will be easy enough to work out what image has to be uploaded.

Here is an example of an entry form with affected entries.

 

Sorry for this inconvenience.

The closing date for this months competition has been extended to Monday night at 11pm
