    As part of the extended programme this year we’re going to be running a further fun competition, and the subject will be “Repetition”.

    It’ll be digital only, and we’ll allow you to enter up to 3 images, however please ensure you number your images (in case we need to control the numbers), Entries by the Sunday before!

    This competition is purely for fun, so the scores allocated won’t contribute to the overall trophy competition, however hopefully it’ll give you something interesting and challenging to think about.

    And the judge for the night will be our very own Chairman Andy Hyde

    For this event we'll be going out and about to "do photography" and to enjoy the summer evening.

    As usual for our photo walks we'll meet around 7:00 and enjoy a safe and socially distanced evening of photography followed by a refreshing beer.

    We'll be meeting near the Fountains in the Broad way, with the intention to stroll into town and meet later at the Platform (opposite the station).

    For our assignment night's our chairman chooses a couple of subjects; one straight forward and one challenging and asks the members to up to 4 digital images to answer those subjects. We'll then show our images to the group to either ask for advice, comments and friendly critique, or to simply enjoy each others' images.

    Assignment nights usually have a mind of their own and never quite end up where we expect, but the journey is always interesting, informative and entertaining.

    Look out for the subjects which will be announced on the night of the 24th September.

    You can learn more about the assignment nights here https://www.hitchincameraclub.org/about-hitchin-camera-club/about-our-evenings/assignment-nights/.
