During 2020 we challenge our members with six (6) competitions throughout the year and an "End Of Year" competition at year's end.
All members are encouraged to take photos for the purpose of entering the competition rather than trawling their catalogue for images that match the set theme. The purpose of the competitions is to inspire creativity and to challenge members to produce quality images for the purpose of entry. With each set subject we will also include an Open category pool. In the open category you are permitted to enter any image for consideration.
A reminder that both Print and Digital entries require a digital copy be sent to the competition steward with the print delivered to the meeting when the entries are due.
The subject descriptions may evolve over time.
Often called "black and white" our monochrome competition is quite the 'open' subject. The only rule is your image must contain only one tonal range. Entries into this competition will also be up for consideration for the Knox Interclub competition later in the year.
Entries due: February 11, 2020 - Our first meeting for the year

Capture the people around you. Show us their lived experience in your work. Ensure you're bringing us an image that will make us feel something about your subject or tell us about their life.

Entries for the End of Year Competition must have been entered in one of the earlier competitions in 2020. It doesn't have to have earned a placing, just been entered. You are free to make changes to the image, however it must be entered in the same format it was entered previously.
Entries Due: October 27, 2020.
Members who require further clarification are encourage to contact us for more clarity on any subject via email@example.com. See the Competition Rules for full details of entry requirements.

Portraits are one of those subjects that everyone wants to do more of, but finding subjects to sit for us can be difficult, but we challenged our members to do exactly that for our 6th competition's set subject. How did they go?Via Zoom
Mr Markham will be taking us on an exploration of using photographic media to create photographs without a camera. The techniques used may surprise you... if you have done darkroom work before, some of it may be familiar. Come along and see what can be done with light, without the typical instrument we use to capture it.
