Change to IOTY RULE

Please note that there will be no PRINT image of the year competition in 2020 as a result of changes forced by Covid virus. Consequently, the committee have decided that “Because of the cancellation of the monthly Print competitions for this year, the Committee has agreed that any Prints entered in the January or February competitions in 2020 may be entered again in any monthly Print or Digital competition (this year or any future year) regardless of any awards they received in January and February.” However to qualify for entry into any Image of the Year competition those images must already have been entered into one of the monthly competitions for that year and must be in the same type of section. Ie: Nature, Colour, Mono. Images that have been entered in Set Subject competitions during the year may be entered in the Colour, Mono or Nature sections of the IOTY if they fit the relevant definitions.
