Annual Competitions

The competition league year runs from January to December.

The club's competitions are open to all full members.

Two competitions - “Open” and “Themed” together form the "Competition League", which has four rounds held from January to December. A round of the league consists of one Open and one Themed competition. In each round, one of the competitions will be for printed images and the other for digital projected images (DPIs) and this alternates from round to round.

The themes are 8 broad categories, each category alternating from print to DPI each alternate year.

The themes are:

Landscape/Seascape

Portrait/People

Nature/Animals

Architecture

Creative

Sport/Action

Close-up/Still life

Transport/Industrial

Please see the programme for competition dates.
