Entry Deadline Changed
Now 23:59 Saturday 18th May

Members can enter up to three images for each competition. If the competition is over-subscribed we will remove your 3rd preference and then your 2nd preference if needed.

All images which score 18 points or more will be featured in this newsletter and on our website unless you select "Do Not Publish" when you upload your image through Photo Entry.

Remember that the author name and image title will be AUTOMATICALLY added to the images after the competition so please make sure you spell everything correctly and no offensive language in the titles. 
Competitions Structure 
2019 - 2020

The committee recently reviewed the competition structure and it was agreed to amend the competition structure from next season. 

We will reduce the maximum number of entries for each competition to 2 per member so that the Competition Secretary does not need to remove any images. This will mean that members can enter 16 images in each league and their top 10 scores will qualify for each league cup.

We will introduce a Beginners League to replace the Newcomers Trophy competition. This will go across both Print and PDI competitions, with beginners having to enter at least 12 images across both leagues to qualify.

We will introduce a Wildlife/Nature Trophy competition open to all members.

The SB Cup will include any portrait image, not just images taken on a club event. The wording is expected to be  "This covers any image where the main subject is a person or people who are posing or otherwise acting under the general direction and control of the photographer, whether in a studio or location, lit or otherwise. ‘Street’ Photography and similar observational/candid images of people are not included."

Full details will be available in the updated version of the competitions handbook which will be published prior to the new season.
