The agenda for our club meetings is set out in advance in the club programme, the content of which is decided based on the interests of all our members. The programme typically includes a mix of competitions (we operate two levels in order to cater for less confident and advanced photographers alike) , 'just for fun' events, tutorials, and club outings.
Most of our competitions are ‘in house’ but with external judges, which greatly reduces the obligation to travel to other clubs. Despite this 'in house' approach, our standard of work is high - as the occasional inter-club competition helps to confirm. Pictures entered for our internal competitions should be new and not similar to those entered before. This helps encourage new and often creative work.
Competitions typically alternate between Projected Images and Print, with some 'just for fun' events thrown in for good measure. It is entirely up to individual members to decide on the number and type of competition that they enter.
We also try to include some practical evenings in our programme, tutorials with ‘in house’ or external experts, and occasional evenings devoted to image manipulation which is popular with those who enjoy using software such as Photoshop and Lightroom.
