August Tutorial – Matt board cutting and Print mounting

For the August tutorial on 27th I will be giving a demonstration on how to cut matt board for club competitions. I will be bring a matt board cutter and some sample matt board to practice with. If anyone has any matt board they want to cut please bring it along. If you bring some entry photos we will be able to mount them as well. Joy will bring along some standard matt board to sell for the club.

Ian English will be demonstrating his hinge system that makes it easier to keep using the same bit of matt board for multiple competitions

Competition changes

For those who were at the AGM will be aware that we have made 2 substantial changes to the way the club runs competitions. The first is to do with the number and format of entries and the second is to do with the club grades. These new guidelines are now listed in the club documentation button under members on the website called comp rules July 2019. In summary the changes are:

Competition Entries

In order to provide additional options and encouragement for members there will be 6 sections made up of 3 categories (colour, mono, set subject)  and 2 formats (EDI, print) as follows for each competition night

  1. Open colour print
  2. Open colour EDI
  3. Open Mono print
  4. Open Mono EDI
  5. Set subject print
  6. Set subject EDI.

Members can submit a maximum of 3 images in total across the 6 sections, and a maximum of two images in one category. e.g. Colour print and colour EDI are one category and only two images can be submitted in total in this category. It could be two in colour print and none in colour EDI, or one in each of colour print and colour EDI, but it is not acceptable to submit two in colour print and one in colour EDI.  The deadline for the EDI categories will be one week earlier than print. Each of the 6 categories will be judged separately.

Club Grades

From next year there will be 3 grades Advance A, A and B grades. Entry to these three grades will be based on total point score in the previous year. A and B grades will continue to submit entries in A4. Advanced A grade will submit print entries on 40 x 50 cm matt board which is suitable for larger images such as A3 or 10” x15”. The intent is that these larger images can then be used external competitions without reprinting. This larger matt board does not exclude submitting images in A4.

CLUB SHIRTS

In case you are interested in purchasing a club shirt, Mono Unique Embroidery in Toronto is where we have been purchasing them and they have our logo. For those of you who are not aware the preferred colour for the club is the light blue but others have selected different colour as per personal choice. There is no hard and fast rule regarding colour but it is easier to spot other club members in a crowd if we have the same colour shirts. 

They also have available long sleeve versions but in less colour choices. David W has one and uses it for sun protection rather than extra warmth and the material it is made of is very cool to wear. Its ideal for club outings where we are out in the sun.
