Over the course of the year, eight rounds of our league competition take place. Four of these rounds are themed, the other four are open. Scroll down to see what themes we have in store for the 2018/19 season! Tutorials nights may be held for the themed rounds where appropriate.

Members may enter up to three images per round using any mixture of colour prints, monochrome prints or projected (digital) images subject to a limit of a maximum of two images per section.

In order for club members to have their work judged against national standards, this competition will be judged by an external judge with each image scored out of 30.

A complete guide & rules to all club competitions can be found here.

Any questions can be directed to our competition secretary who can be reached via our ‘contact‘ page.
