FAQs

I don't live in Calverley, can I enter the show?
Yes, you're very welcome to enter. There are a some "best in show" type awards for Calverley residents and also for non-residents. When you register, please tick the appropriate box if you're a Calverley resident (or a plot-holder on the Calverley allotments).
How much does it cost to enter?
Entry is free.
How many entries can I submit?
As many as you want, just one photo per entry, though.
Is there a specific size and format for the photo?
The size is up to you, but think about whether the subject looks best in landscape or portrait format. There are some example images in the gallery for guidance for each class. The system expects one of the common digital image formats like JPEG or PNG. Most likely, if your image is being uploaded from a computer, tablet or smartphone it will be fine. If you have any problems, please use the Contact Us option and we'll try and help.
Will everyone be able to see my photos?
After a short delay to check that they’re suitable, yes, all entries by everyone will be viewable. As in the 'normal' show, your name won't be shown until after all the entries have been judged.
Why is there a delay in my entry showing in the gallery?
Because we're allowing anyone to register on the site and then upload content. This is open to misuse, so we'll manually check each entry to make sure it’s suitable for display. We reserve the right to reject and remove inappropriate entries and, if necessary, block some users from the site
Can I amend my entry?
Yes, for example you can change the class entered, replace the original photograph and amend any text. Amended entries will be rechecked for suitability, so there will again be a delay before it appears in the gallery. You can also delete an entry.
I don't have any way of uploading photos, can I send prints?
Sorry, we can only accept online entries.
Why do I need to give you an email address to register? What will you use it for?
Your email address is unique and will be your username for logging into the website. It is also needed if you forget your password. We won't use it for anything else or pass it on to anyone. It's not displayed on the site and will be deleted once the show is over.
How can children submit entries?
If they have their own email address they can register in their own name. They can also submit entries via a parent's login. The default exhibitor name on each entry is the name of the account used to log in, but you can type in a different name if a child is entering using a parent's account.
What are the prizes?
Unlike our virtual show held last summer, this is a just-for-fun one-off. For each class, we'll award 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. The judges may also award a highly commended certificate. None of the usual CHS trophies will be awarded. There are awards for the overall best entries by a Calverley resident and non-resident in the general and children's sections of the show.
What's the deadline for entries?
Midnight on 4th April 2021 (Easter Sunday).
How will I know if I've won?
Winners will be announced soon after the entries are closed and judged.
What happens after the winners have been selected?
The website will be continue to be accessible so that people have a opportunity to see the complete show. You retain all the rights to your photographs but we may use them to set up a physical display and to promote the upcoming Centenary Show.
