Recently there has been some concern that broad lit females would be automatically rejected by the judges for CPP compulsory's. To clarify it is OK to use a woman as a the subject for your broad light compulsory.

Please Note: quoted from the Commission with their permission "A woman may be properly photographed with lighting from several styles, i.e., "broad", "short". "butterfly", "split" and even "Rembrandt", so long as it is flattering and enhancing to the woman's face and figure."

As long as your not broad lighting a heavy set person with a round face you should be OK.

It's only an automatic rejection if you submit it as the short lit compulsory.

Mark is correct. As far as I know, none of the judges are making this a rule, internally or externally.
