This week the club held the second competition of the 2018-2019 club year, and the theme was "Number". The club welcomed Doug Bennison from Lydiate to judge the images. This competition had a large number of digital entries, so for the first time the club made use of the rule to exclude 3rd choice images to limit the number of entries. As ever, points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition.

Well, we got there in the end! This week the club held the first competition of the 2018-2019 club year, and the theme was "Open". The club welcomed Cy Newton from to judge the images.

Hi All

Unfortunately, the second session of the studio night ((8:30 > 9:15) is now full, but the first session (7:30 > 8:15) still has 8 places left.

Remember - book it or miss it!

There have been a couple of minor changes to the programme to be aware of. 

Firstly, we have secured an opportunity to photograh inside the Warrington Town Hall, but unfortunately they have a council meeting on our planned date of 13th August and we cannot be accommodated so we are moving this event to Monday 20th August, a week later than billed. This will mean a three week gap between meetings.

The events from Jan 28th 2019 and 11th Feb 2019 have swapped over to accommodate the a availability of the guest Speaker. George Franks will now attend on Feb 11th and the competition is now on Jan 28th.

The programme has been updated on the website to reflect the changes.
