These are competitions amongst Society members and are judged by a variety of experienced 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.
This Year's Competition:
On Tuesday 3rd March, we had the judging session for our fourth and final round of the 2019/20 season. The theme was "Belonging", and the judge was Tim Morland. The blog report is available here.
