    I wonder why inkjet, dyesub and laser prints are not allowed - are they in anyway less photographic? A photo is a photo, the method of printing should not be a factor in judging anyway. Maybe that's why I didn't win the merlion comp, I sent in an inkjet print coz I only decided to do so at the 11th hour. But the Merlion comp didn't have such a rule.... oh well. Now we know.

    i think (if i not wrong) that there's a concern for these organisers that inkjet and laser prints might have their colours run and that the prints won't last very long. at least that's what i've been told before.

    Well, it's only an entry. They require you to send the original negs/slides/files to them, which they will reprint for whatever they want anyway. So what gives??

    Then they might as well say "Entries taken with point and shoots, or SLRs using "Auto" and "Program" modes will be disqualified" or "Traditional B&W prints on RC paper will be disqualified - Fibre-based papers must be used", or something.

    Seem like people are no longer judging an entry on its own merit.

    Dunno man.

    And they didn't even list their judging criteria, and judging (sorry for the pun) previous contests by them, it sure looks like "almost random" - anyhow pick a few and make them winners.

    Yes you can indeed. My point is, what has the method of printing gotta do with the merit of the picture in the first place? At least limiting it to a Fuji print (as in the case of Fuji-sponsored event) isn't so bad. But limiting inkjet and dyesub is crazy.

    oh, I never read the post probably. I got wat you mean. I think they want you to process your print at photolab is because business is very bad lately. Photolabs are closing down one by one. They want you to print you prints there so they can survive , at least for a month.

    hehe.. I am talking cork.


    /me back to study.
