1 – The competition is open to professionals and amateurs alike, however photos from areas where media accreditation is needed can only be entered in class 1. Photos in all other 9 classes must have been taken from publicly accessible areas (including GRRC enclosures.) Accreditation gives access to pit lane, start line, assembly areas, drivers club and certain photographic viewpoints unavailable to most photographers.
2 - All photographs entered must have been taken by the entrant during 2018/2019 and be as specified in the classes entered.
3 - Entrants may enter a maximum of SEVEN classes of their choice out of the ten on offer.
4 - All entries must be accompanied by an entry form which can be downloaded from the files section of the IGPG page. Please state on the entry form, classes entered and a brief description of each photo i.e. where and when taken plus subject. ALL entrants will also be asked to state their photographic level from one of four categories - Professional, Semi Professional, Keen Amateur and Amateur. If you are unsure as to what category, then please do ask.
We are asking this only so as to help us to do two things - firstly to help sort out those who would be eligible for the Best Amateur Photographer award, and secondly to help us better understand our entrants and their abilities and so better plan future competitions. You will not be judged on those abilities and no information will be held in a database.
5 - All photographs must be entered as prints at either A4 or 12x8 in size on the photographic paper of your choice. Photographs may be cropped to any degree but do not cut the prints to size. Please do not mount your photos or write anything on the back of them and please make sure all watermarks are removed.
6 - Failure to follow these rules may lead to your entry/entries being disqualified from the competition.
7 - All entries should be sent to the following address -
IGPG Photographic Competition
Park Lodge, Bedham Road,

8 - ALL entries must be received by November the 30th 2019; late entries will not be accepted except where postal strikes have delayed delivery.
9 - On receipt of entries, all photos will be uniquely numbered and logged with the entrant's name. The judges will only see the number during the judging process to retain anonymity.
10 - Judging will take place in January/February by a panel of judges, independent of the IGPG and their decision will be final.
11 - Once judging is complete, all points will be added up to find the IGPG Photographer of the Year. Points will be scored - 4 for a 1st, 3 for a 2nd, 2 for a 3rd and 1 for a HC (where awarded), with the winner being the person accruing the most points. In the event of a tie, then the photographer with the most first places will win and so on. There will also be an award for the IGPG Amateur Photographer of the Year for the most points accrued by those marking their entry form as such. However the amateur winner from the previous year will not be eligible. The judges will also be looking for their favourite photographs which will be awarded the Judges Choice award and the Duke's award respectively.
12 - On the day of the show, all visitors will be asked to vote for their favourite photograph out of all the entries on display. The photo polling the most votes will be awarded the IGPG Photograph of the Year.
13 - Prize cards will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and highly commended and all trophies will be presented on the day of the show.
