There will be SIX competitions during the season - THREE digital competitions and THREE print competitions.

As in previous seasons, each competition will be held on a separate night - the intention is to maximise the judging time available on competition night.

There will be THREE themed competitions (2 x Digital and 1 x Print) viz:


  • LEADING LINES (Digital)

  • MACRO / CLOSE-UP (Print)


Consequently, there will be THREE open competitions (1 x Digital and 2 x Print)

All images must originate from either digital capture or from traditional film. Where digital capture has been used, the Competition Secretary reserves the right to see the original RAW or .jpg image as generated by the camera or recording medium. The whole of the image must be taken by the photographer and that person must hold the copyright to all parts of the image used.

Submission of images for entry into a competition indicates acceptance by the entrant that these images may be displayed on the Society's website.

NB: This season - in addition to the above six competitions, there will be an additional internal competition on 24th April 2023.

Members will be invited to judge entries in two categories - "SCAPES" and "ACTION".

Entries will be limited to1x image per member per category.

The results of this competition will not be included in the cumulative scores for the six normal competitions and hence will not count towards the "PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR" awards.


Further details will be published nearer the date of the competition.
