These are competitions amongst ourselves and are judged by a variety of EAF judges or professional photographers. There is a mix of open and themed competitions, and images are marked out of 20. Any member can enter and judging takes place anonymously, so it's a great forum for everyone to have their images constructively critiqued.
The total scores from the four print and DPI (digital projected image) competition rounds held each season decide who are our "top" photographers in each category.
