    For this competition we’ll be welcoming back Linda Woodward.

    For the Panel competition we’ll be asking you to combine 3 separate photographs into single image, and we’ll allow each member to enter 2 sets of 3 images. What your images are and how you combine them is entirely up to you, however the images should have a common theme and make a cohesive set. The panel competition is Digital only.

    You can find information about the Panel competition here. Don’t forget of course you can look back through previous competition entries in either the “What’s New” pages, or within the competition menu. Please remember your panel needs to consist of 3 separate images (you're not allowed to cut one photo into 3).

    As with all competitions your digital entries need to be in no later than midnight on the Sunday before the competition.

    We’ll also be announcing the 2 subjects for Assignment Night 3 on the 6th April.

    We all carry immensely powerful devices in our pockets everyday so in this presentation Thomas Peck will be showing us how to get the best from our phone cameras.

    Many of you will remember the success our chairman had a few years ago when he used his mobile as a camera for a year so this will be a great opportunity to reprise some of Andy's hints and tips and to learn some new ones!

    You can find information about the Changing competitions here. If you need more guidance on competitions why not check out the advice in the competition menu.

    Every year we hold our AGM to bring the members up to date with what’s been going on in the club over the last year, tell the members what’s coming up for the next season and get the members input on how they want the club to be run. I’d therefore ask you all to attend this important meeting.

    We’ll be publishing the Agenda 2-3 weeks before the meeting, and would ask that if there’s anything you’d like to discuss you raise it in writing no less than 1 week before the meeting.
