Order your 20x16 competition prints with SIMLAB
With the return of the 2022 convention in Hammersmith, London, also comes the return of the esteemed 20x16" print competition. We're thrilled to be partnered with SWPP, providing their members with professional, cost effective solutions to seeing their best images printed and displayed. Competitions provide valuable experience for all types of photographers both at entry level and leaders of the industry and this year should see a fantastic return of the 20x16" submissions on display in March. We offer a dedicated 20x16" competition print product offering you a professionally finished product at a fantastic price. Design with your own choice of boarder width & upload your image to be expertly printed and mounted onto flat, moisture resistant 3mm foamex, perfect for putting on display. We also offer a range of papers to choose from so you can tailor your finish to suit your style perfectly. Pricing for competition prints are listed at the bottom of this page.
SIMLAB competition print production time is 3-5 working days, and we only ship direct to our customers, so we do NOT currently send entries directly to the SWPP submission address. You'll need to order & receive your print, then send off to SWPP complete with your application form in plenty of time before the deadline on the 1st of March.
Judging Dates and Times: Wednesday 16th – Thursday 17th March 2022 - Available for photographers to watch
Judging & Award Venue: The Novotel London West Hotel, 1 Shortlands, Hammersmith, London W6 8DR

Entry Fees based on the arrival of your prints to The Societies HQ (per print)

Any prints received after 1st March 2022 will not be submitted into the competition as the prints will be travelling to London on this date. No refunds will be issued for prints arriving after 28th February, this includes prints sent directly from printing labs. Any prints with outstanding payments after 1st March 2022 will not be entered, even if the prints arrived before the deadline date. Each print must have an application form attached to the back in the right orientation. Prints which arrive without forms, or with loose forms, will be subject to a discretionary administration fee dependent on the number of prints affected.
The winners will be announced at our prestigious Presentation Evening at the 2022 Convention in London & all category and sub-category winners receive a trophy and there will be additional prizes from sponsoring suppliers of each category!
For our competition mounted prints we have 6 fine art paper options as seen below. We offer a paper sample pack available to order with our full range of photographic, large format and fine art papers for only £2.50+VAT.
Created with a premium quality fine art giclée print, we use state of the art technology for high definition and high resolution prints. The Epson Stylus Pro 9890 used for our competition prints creates true-to-life prints with top quality colour gamuts and consistently smooth graduations using Ultrachrome K3 archival ink.
Our competition prints are mounted onto 3mm white PVC Foamex board which is lightweight, sturdy, moisture resistant and lies completely flat. Hang on the wall with the velcro straps provided or display your competition mounted print on an easel for easy presentation, manual handling or judging panels.
Competition prints do not have a border added as standard. All images are printed at full bleed at 20x16", meaning any border requirements must be added directly to your file before uploading. You could also add in your name, logo, caption or PGN signature in the border for additional information or impact.
