We had another great comp night  over zoom last night.  

Last night was our last normal comp night for 2021. (What a year!).

There were once again some very impressive images from our very talented members.

Congratulations and well done everyone!

It was fantastic to have our judge Ian Marriner join us on our zoom meeting. He did a fantastic job, giving us some great tips on what judges are looking for and how to improve our images. Please be sure to check out his very detailed and insightful comments on our images on the website.  

Our next competition night will be our POTY. 

The date for POTY is Monday 8
th November.

The closing date for entries will be 11pm on Saturday 23rd October.

From today, Tuesday 12th October, that gives us another 11 days.

Everyone should now be aware that this will be digital only… sadly no prints to admire again this year.

At this stage we cannot say where our POTY will be held, at the club or at home over zoom.  Fingers crossed we can get to meet up again at the club!
We will keep you posted.

The categories for POTY are Colour, Mono and Nature.

You can enter 4 images and they must be images that have already been entered this year.

No alteration is allowed to what has already been submitted.

For the nature section you can enter any image from this year’s competitions as long as it meets the nature criteria.

Unfortunately, if you miss the deadline there is nothing we can do. The images are passed onto the judge early in the morning on the day after and the competition cannot be reopened.

Please put the date in your calendar where you’ll remember.

Our judge for this year’s POTY is  David Spratt.
