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 months judging is done, and the “Members Gallery” is where the winning entries from each month will be shown.

The “News and Events” section, accessed from the menu above has the detailed information on upcoming events and also the Calendar of Events and Handbook. This post has links to information which includes the photographic topics for each months competition as well as how the images are to be presented. Committee members contact details, membership fees and general information.(in the handbook) and the dates of the planned activities and meetings (in the programme).
This programme gets updated from time to time so it pays to check for changes from time to time.

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.

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