On the last meeting of every month we hold a friendly 'fun competition' The aim of club competitions is to encourage members to take photographs in familiar and maybe not so familiar settings and to develop and extend skills and techniques. All images submitted for competitions will recieve an open and constructive critique.

The rules for the monthly competitions are very straight-forward:
Interpretation of the theme is up to the photographer but do bear in mind that if the relationship of an image to the theme is not immediately obvious, it may affect how it is seen and judged.
Images which make the ‘Top 5’ will be retained for display at the POTY event at the end of the year.
All competitions will be judged by a ballot of members or by an appointed judge.
Points will be awarded for competitions on the following basis, points will count towards the annual club 'Photographer Of The Year' award. An additional point may be awarded for 'Judges Choice' or 'Highly Commended' images
5 points for first place
4 points for second place
3 points for third place
