Guidelines for Prints, Mounting, and Entry Tags

Each print is to be unframed and mounted on 11” x 14” mat. An undersized mat is not acceptable. Only one print per mat is accepted. Display with single mat only in black or white; no coloured mats. Bristol board cut into 4 squares or heavy construction paper works well. Recommended print size is 8” x 10” up to 8 ½” x 11”. The minimum size is 5” x 7”. Exceptions only in categories S4/D4 where print sizes may be modified to accommodate before and after prints on a single mat. S8/D8 3-6 smaller photos are allowed. In S10/D10 1 or 3-6 smaller photos allowed. All Photo entries can be either colour or black and white.

There is an entry limit of 4 entries per category to a maximum of 14 entries per exhibitors. Entry tags must show CATEGORIES ONLY on the outside. Titles and location of shots or special effects used may be written on the INSIDE of the entry tags. Please clearly print the category on the OUTSIDE of the entry tag and attach the entry tag to the bottom right-hand corner of the mat. Be sure to code your entry tag accurately. C = Cell Phone; D = Digital Camera; S = Standard Film.  Examples on entry tags, C5 = Pictoral by a Cellphone; D6 = Sports by a Digital Camera; S1 = Portrait by Standard Film.

Descriptions for Clarity

Portrait: One or more persons not necessarily in a studio setting. The subject should be posed and waiting for the photograph to be taken.

Photojournalism: Three to six (3-6) photos that tell a story. The story should have a beginning, middle and end. All photos are to be mounted on a single 11x14 mat.

Experimental / Enhanced / Special Effects: Two (2) photos mounted on a single mat. (1) mount the “original natural” shot and (2) mount the “enhanced/special effect” shot. The original may be modified by shooting in an unusual way or by computer manipulations (using Adobe, Photoshop, Kid Pix etc.) to get the enhanced shot.

Special Thanks

On behalf of the Peachland Fall Fair, and the Peachland community at large, we would like to extend a warm thank you to the judges! Our Fair could not have happened without their expertise and generosity. A community like Peachland works best when its members take an active role in activities.

Thank you for coming forward and donating your time to judge all the entries in the 2019 Peachland Fall Fair.


The Peachland Fall Fair is always a big event that takes a lot of organizing and without the help of dedicated volunteers this event would not be possible. Thank you to all the volunteers for donating countless hours to ensure the success of the annual Peachland Fall Fair.

Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.
