FOGCC …..Print Competitions

(RPS / YPU Guide for exhibiting printed images.)


  • Prints may be home or trade processed.
  • Prints must be mounted but not framed. Mounts can be any form or colour and should be the standard size of 400 x 500mm ± 2mm along either length and not exceeding 4mm in thickness to facilitate framing. It may not be possible to exhibit a print that does not meet this standard.
  • Overly flimsy mounts should be avoided.
  • Prints must be secured to the mount to prevent slippage. Since all prints are stacked one on top of the other, every effort should be made to eliminate any sharp projections, rough surfaces and/or adhesive substances from the back of prints.
