Competition - 4 Metalic DPI
So here everything which is metal would be acceptable. So a car, plane, fork, screw, you get the drift. However, paper, paint, fabric or anything with a metallic sheen, e.g. a pearl for example, would fit the bill. So variety is endless I feel. The Judge will be briefed for both competitions that anything we put before him/her has been accepted by Sue to fit the category.

Competition 5 - Round Prints
This is a subject as easily achieved at or close to home as it is if you were to go further afield. First of all let me make it clear that the print itself does not need to be round!!
I don’t propose that the subject itself needs to be an absolutely perfect geometrically round shape but should generally be ‘round’. For example a flower, a ring of fungi, a round of drinks!! Again, the Judge will be briefed that images presented to him/her are acceptable

DCC’s 1st competition of the season is “On the Edge”. It must be clear to the Judge and viewers that “On the Edge” is represented visually e.g.:
• a pigeon on the edge of a roof;
• a raindrop on the edge of a leaf;
• a person standing on a cliff edge;
• use of negative space with the subject at the edge of the image.
• On the Edge of Destruction;
• On the Edge of Tears;
