Every year we develop a varied programme of events and competitions which help us all to learn and develop as photographers, and have a bit of fun while we’re doing it! The events are usually focused on our Wednesday night sessions, but may occasionally include some extra events such as a trip or visits to other clubs.
We have presentations and lectures from guest speakers which may be instructional – such as a talk on Lightroom – or simply a talk about a photography trip or technique.
We hold monthly internal club competitions for various combinations of prints,slides and digital images. These competitions are are sometimes judged by some of our own members, but more usually judges from other clubs and societies from the South Wales and South West areas. Points awarded in these competitions accrue over the year and count towards the Photographer of the Year (POTY) title, and its accompanying trophy. The rules governing our competitions can be found here
We also take part in friendly Inter-Club “battles” to give members the chance to submit their best work against other local clubs in South-East Wales and sometimes further afield.
