Member Upgradings and Regradings
Recommendations for upgrading are made by the Scorekeeper to the Committee at the conclusion of a year's competition. The formula for upgrading is Total Score in Monthly Competitions in Prints, Slides and/or Digital Projected Images (minus entry points) divided by the Number of Entries submitted.
If, after a year's competition, this result is an average point score of 8 or more, then upgrading is recommended.
These points must be obtained from a minimum number of entries, i.e. 75% of the year's total number of monthly competitions.
Members will be invited, on reaching the set standard, to accept upgrading. This upgrading can be declined for 1 year. However, continuation of appropriate standards in the following year will make upgrading compulsory for that member.
Individuals who wish to have their current grading reviewed may apply, in writing, to the Committee for consideration of their grade. Re-grading (up or down) will be effective before the beginning of each competition year.
