About Club Competitions

The club holds two competitions each year, which members are encouraged to enter.

The autumn competition is "open" (any subject matter), the spring competition is a set "subject" e.g. "Sea & Coast" for the Spring 2019 competiton. The competition subject is set at the club's AGM.

Prints Competition:

  • Submit x 4 prints (colour or B&W).
  • The max print size (mounted) is 50cm x 40cm. Note: this is a max size and not a requirement, so entries can be smaller if you only have e.g. an A4 printer.
  • Prints can be printed on your home printer, they don't have to be professiosnally printed.
  • Write the "title" of your entry on the back of the mount, but don't include your name.

Need Help?

  • If you need any help or advice on this, please ask! A club member can help advise on how to mount your prints or resize/save your images.
  • Note: you can submit just "digital images" or just "prints" if you want.
  • No problems if you don’t want to enter – just come along & see what other members are doing & listen to the judge's opinions as to the merits of the image. They are usually very kind & provide constructive feedback on the subject matter, composition & technique.
  • Winning images & prints will usually get submitted to the next (regional) competitions (e.g. North Wales Photographic Association or local inter-club print or PDI competitions.
