What are the 'Challenges'?

The 'Challenges' are a very informal monthly competition for club members to take part in if they wish.

At each club meeting we show the entries for the previous month and those present vote for their favourite. There are no prizes - the winner gets a round of applause and our sincere admiration.

Each month's challenge has a set theme, the idea being to encourage participants to get out and about with their cameras, or perhaps re-visit some of their recently taken images with a view to making the most of them.

    The Rules

1. Entry is free to Club members.

2. All images entered in the Challenges must originate from a camera. You can use post-processing to improve your images but 100% computer-generated images are not eligible.

3. Images entered should:-
      be in digital jpg or png format - no prints or slides;
      be of a suitable file size (eg 1.5 to 2Mb / 1200px by 900px) for display on a digital projector;

[* After the competition entries will posted on our website, in submitting your entry, you are agreeing for your images to be used in this way.]

    How to Enter

Please e-mail your entries to - this is preferred to using the organiser's personal e-mail address as whenever he is away your entries will still be forwarded automatically to the right person. Please make your images no smaller than 1Mb and no larger than 2Mb - as a guide, about 1200 pixels along the longest edge is plenty big enough for your image to be projected with good quality).
