Wed 26 Feb 2014 - Lochmaben trophy + The SPF Portfolios

7:30pm

A print competition where you bring along and present a panel of 3 or 4 prints to be judged by the membership. The panel of prints need to be a theme of your own choosing.

Just bring your entry along on the night, they're put up on the display boards for all present to see. Every person is given a piece of paper to judge their 1st, 2nd & 3rd (letters and numbers are placed next to each print for this purpose). So a pen might be handy. Causes happy chaos at break time when everyone is trying to see all the prints! - Catherine C.

Your prints don't need to be...

Wed 4 Sep 2013 - Treasure Hunt Challenge

6:00pm

<strong>Note:</strong> Please ensure you are starting with a blank memory card in your cameras at the beginning of this event as your images will be downloaded to the club computer on your return. Please photograph in jpeg only.

Let us hope it is not raining as we will be sent out, in small teams, on a Photographic 'Treasure Hunt'. Follow the map you'll receive on the night and photograph the clues at each of the 'Hot-Spots'. You'll score 2 points for each correct answer. Look out for the 'Bonus Photos' which will be worth 5 points...
