Rules and Conditions of Entry
Our event is run under the patronage or recognition of: FIAP and GPU
Many of our rules and conditions are set by either FIAP, PSA or the GPU as a condition of their patronage. (Or in the case of PSA our exhibition has chosen to ‘adopt’ PSA rules without necessarily having their patronage.)
Certain large sections of text below are marked as originating from one or more of these sources.
- Southampton International Exhibition is organised and run by Southampton Camera Club, a not-for-profit amateur photographic society. We depend on the goodwill and enthusiasm of our members to administer the Exhibition, and for the safe custody of your prints and other materials. We therefore must make it a condition of entering the Exhibition that you acknowledge that the value of your prints and materials do not exceed the entry fee paid by you, and therefore our liability to you, should your prints or materials be damaged, or go missing, even if we have been careless, will not extend beyond returning the entry fee. Should you believe that the value of your prints and materials may be significantly greater than that, please contact us to agree the cost of additional insurance.
- Our planned date for posting prints, catalogues and awards to entrants can be found on our Dates/Classes page. Any claims relating to the non-arrival of such items should be made before the end of July, which is normally about 11 weeks after the posting date.
- ENTRIES RECEIVED WITHOUT SUFFICIENT FEES, OR PAID FOR WITH FOREIGN CHEQUES OR MONEY ORDERS, WILL NOT BE JUDGED OR RETURNED.
- Only payments made through the online payment portal ‘Paypal’ are acceptable.
