Note

Salon Points are scored as follows for images and AVs:

Images:
A salon acceptance (National or International) - 1 point. If a COM or medal has been acquired - 2 points.

AVs:
A salon acceptance (National or International) - 2 points. If a COM or medal has been acquired - 4 points.

All gold or merit awards and club points which are attained in a specific star grading, do not get carried over to the next star grading. Only salon points will be accumulated and are carried over from one star grading to the next. For example: should a member be short 1 gold award and 3 points for a promotion to the next star grading, and is awarded 2 golds and 5 points on a given club evening, the extra gold and the additional 2 points do not get carried over for credit to the higher star grading. The reason is that the image which achieved a gold has been judged on lower requirements than the next higher star group.
