Framing for photography competitions

When preparing for a photography competition there are 3 main areas to pay attention to: 

  1. Printing:

    Where image quality is optimised, how much or how little?
  2. Presentation:

    How best to display your work
  3. Mounting:

    How to measure, cut, mount and display your photographs 
Printing

Depending on the level of competition, you could be able to gauge the standard of quality when it comes to printing. For the majority of competitions we offer a printing service using our Canon printer printing on Pearl 300gsm photo paper which is cost effective and great quality. 

Presentation

When it comes to competitions most events have similar rules. Photograph and mount must be no larger than Size: 500 x 400mm. They may specify a colour for the mount, normally white or black. Orientation and border sizes tend not to matter as long they’re in proportion to the picture

Mounting

To help you clearly understand how to mount your own picture here is a guide on how to mount your pictures for a photography competition.
