internal competitions

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of our competitions is to encourage you to take pictures and to show them to the Club. Competition adds a great deal to the overall enjoyment and the judges' comments can be insightful, if frustrating at the same time. 

Competition can be fierce but we all do it for fun and you should never be discouraged if your picture is not succesful.

We encourage all members to get involved.

LEAGUE COMPETITIONS

We have a Colour Print Leaguent League, a Mono Print League and a Projected Digital Image League.

The League competitions allow you to compete against others at your own level in as many Divisions as are required (see scoring for more info). We also hold an Annual Competition, open to all members, near the end of the year. In addition to this we have several less serious competitions which are briefly described in the website Syllabus.

We try to limit each League to around 8 competitors to keep the competition tight and, at the beginning of a season, some restructuring may be necessary to achieve this. This can mean that some members may be askled to drop down, or move up, a League to create a more open field.
