Only members in good standing may submit entries for competition. Once submitted, an image may never again be submitted in a SCC competition. The image is, however, eligible for submission in that year’s salon.
Once submitted as a projected image, a print from that projected image may not be submitted in the same year. Likewise, once a print is submitted, the projected image from which it originated may not be submitted in the same year.
