The MASTER Award seeks to recognise the Highest Standard of UK Amateur Photography.
20 Prints are required and a total score of 450 or more will gain the award. The top score for an image is 30 points
The Adjudicators are looking for a very high standard of photography, photographs which, in their opinion would enjoy a considerable level of success in International Exhibitions including consistent and frequent acceptances.
The scoring is based on 6 judges scoring between 2 and 5 points per image. Adjudicators are looking for a standard that has a high probability of being accepted into Exhibitions and could win an occasional award. This merits a vote YES recorded as 4
If they consider an image does not have a high probability of constantly being accepted in Open Exhibitions it merits a NO vote shown as 2. A Near Miss of the standard is considered as a 3
A probable Award Winner being well above the standard required and considered to more often than not receive awards is recorded as a 5
