New member?
As a new member, you may be wondering, what is the club all about?

Obviously, photography is what it is all about, but what about the nuts and bolts of how the club operates and who are the people in the club?

The first port of call for all members would be where you are now, the club web site where, featured on the front page of the site, is the champion image from the previous month’s competition. This image will change as each month’s judging is done, and the “Members Gallery” is where the winning entries from each month will be shown.

Guidelines for monthly competition entries.

Information regarding how a member submits entries into the monthly competitions is detailed in the Handbook in the “competition guidelines” section. The definitions for each months’ set subjects are detailed in the Calendar. Click the critique night entry to expand the view which will then show the details for that month, including the subject definition.

Then there is the club’s FaceBook page.
If you are on FaceBook have a look and “like” it 🙂
