All images submitted for competitions will recieve an open and constructive critique.

Competition Rules

The rules for the monthly competitions are very straight-forward:


  • All Photographs submitted must be the copyright of, and must have been taken by the member entering them.
  • 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.

  • All photos must be printed - home or commercially made prints are acceptable.
  • The maximum size for all prints is A4 (portrait or landscape).
  • If a print is smaller than A4 then please mount it on A4 card or paper for easy display and framing. Other than this, all prints must be unframed and unmounted.
  • Bear in mind that prints will be displayed in a mount around 2mm less than A4 
    on all sides. Take this into account especially if you have detail on the edge of the images that could be obscured.
  • Unless specified otherwise, prints may be in colour or black and white.
  • The maximum number of entries per member is two.
  • The same photo must not have been previously entered for a club competition.
  • Photos must have no watermarks or added text unless specified otherwise.
  • If there is any possibility of doubt regarding the orientation of the image, please clearly indicate the top of the image on the back so it can be displayed properly.
  • 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.
