Each year, our programme offers dates where members can submit entries to be judged in competition. Some like to participate, others take the opportunity to enjoy the display and learn by observation and absorption of the judges' comments. There's a lot to be learned from these competitions where highly-qualified judges assess each entry, commenting on its strengths and potential for improvement. We use the judges' comments to learn about the standards expected in photographic competitions whilst picking up tips on techniques as well as gaining from their considerable experience.
