The Mat Board can be of any colour and the size of the cut-out can be according to the size of your print but within the size of the mat board. Prints can be submitted in Portrait or Landscape and it should be noted that evaluators (at their discretion) will also judge your image based on its presentation. The club usually maintains a stock of Mat and Backing Boards that can be purchased via the Treasurer for $10 each.
