What is Mulitscreen?
Multiscreen is an interclub competition in which each club submits one image to represent 25 predetermined subjects/categories.
On competition night, each club projects one image on a screen for each category and a judge selects the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Note: The projected image may or may not be that club’s entry. At the end of the competition, the scores are tallied, and the camera club with the lowest score wins. Ribbons are distributed for 1st place winners only.
The Camera clubs that participate in addition to PSRI are Fall River Camera Club, Quinebaug Valley Photography Club, and Seven Hills Camera Club.
Submission and selection description follows the subject list.
The subjects for the 2017-2018 are: Image Entry Form
- Freeze the Action
- In the Wild

- Night Sky
- Still Life

How to submit
PSRI members can go online to the PSRI website to submit their images. Navigate to Competition à Multiscreen Competition, and select the Image Entry Form. Make sure to select the Multiscreen competition from the drop down menu. Submissions will be accepted throughout the 2017-2018 club season as soon as the online entry form is available (an announcement will be made when this is the case). The deadline is Tuesday, April 3, 2018.Each member can submit up to and including 3 images in any subject/category and can enter into as few or as many categories as they like. Members can interpret the categories in any way they believe will work for competition purposes.
- The images must have been taken between April 4, 2017 and April 3, 2018.
- The submitted images must depict the subject.
- Judging is based on how well the image depicts the subject and how well it is technically executed.
- If a subject is listed as plural i.e. boats, then the image must be of more than one boat.
- If the subject has an “s” in parenthesis i.e. boat(s), then the image can have one or more boats.
One image from each category will be selected to represent PSRI. The method of selection has yet to be determined but members will be notified once the process has been finalized. In the past, images were pre-screened and narrowed down to 3 or 4 images by photographers outside of PSRI. The remaining images were presented to members on a meeting night to vote on and select the club’s entry.
