                    With the three selectors each awarding a score of between two and five, the minimum score obtainable was six and

                    the maximum was fifteen. The task for the selectors is not just to choose the best images but also to select those that

                    will make a balanced exhibition. The hanging space only allows for the display of 138 prints from an entry of 1,016 so

                    having two hangings meant an acceptance rate of about one in seven.

                    Acceptance Scores:

                    In the Monochrome & Nature Print categories, a mark of 12 or higher guaranteed acceptance, unless an image

                    had received a ‘5’ from one of the selectors. A score of 11 or higher in the Colour Print, Open PDI and Nature PDI

                    categories was the required mark to guarantee selection.
