Salon Points are scored as follows for images and AVs:

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

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.

Salonpunte word soos volg toegeken vir beelde en AV’s:

‘n Salon-aanname (Nasionaal of Internasionaal) – 1 punt. Indien ‘n COM of medalje verwerf is – 2 punte.

‘n Salon aanname (Nasionaal of Internasionaal) – 3 punte. Indien ‘n COM of medalje verwerf is – 4 punte.

Alle goue of meriete toekennings en klubpunte wat in ‘n spesifieke stergroep verwerf word, word nie oorgedra na die volgende stergroep nie. Slegs salonpunte akkumuleer en word dus oorgedra vanaf een stergroep na die volgende. Byvoorbeeld, as ‘n lid slegs 1 goue toekenning en 3 punte kort om bevorder te word na ‘n volgende stergroep en by ‘n gegewe klubaand 2 goue toekennings en 5 punte verdien, word die ekstra goud en die addisionele 2 punte nie oorgedra tot krediet van die hoër stergroep nie. Die rede is dat die beeld wat ‘n goud verwerf het, beoordeel is op laer vereistes as die van die volgende hoër stergroep.
