The DISTINCTION Award seeks to recognise Open Exhibition Standard Photography
15 Prints are required and a total score of 300 or more will gain the award. The top score for an image is 30 points
Adjudicators are looking for a very high standard of photography, photographs which, in their opinion would be accepted in Open Exhibitions
The scoring is based on 6 adjudicators scoring between 2 and 5 points per image. This merits a vote YES, recorded as 4
If they consider an image does not have a high likelihood of being accepted in Open Exhibitions it merits a NO vote, shown as 2. A Near Miss of the standard is considered as a 3.
Well above the standard required and likely, but not guaranteed to score 4 at MPAGB level. This merits the best vote possible indicating that the photograph will be satisfactory at the next level is recorded as a 5
