Hello Guys......

If a merit print returns from competition with a damage - when sent on to nationals, will points be held back because it is flawed?

Thanks!

Jane,

Great question, When prints are handeled as many times as they are for any competition some damage will occure.

When a print comes before the panel that has damage the judges are instructed to ignore the damage as they review the image.

As a judge, I know that when we see an image that the damage is not the fault of the maker the maker will always be given the benifit of the doubt.

Thanks for asking.

Thank you for responding Dennis - the thought of my print looking that was was driving me crazy but at least now I know not to worry. :)
