Our membership is currently just £45 for the season, although some additional activities may require a small charge to cover club costs.
Members are graded as Advanced, Intermediate or Beginners, depending on their photographic ability.
We hold our own internal competitions consisting of four rounds of Print and Projected Digital Image (PDI) each season. All members can submit images to each internal competition for judging by an independent external judge. Of course, you don't have to enter competitions at all - you may just like to hear the judges critiquing of members work, but there is nothing like the excitement of putting in your own images!
Through the SCPF we are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and we have a very active committee who meet throughout the year. In addition to the internal competition between members, we also enjoy the challenges of competing against other clubs, both locally and within the Southern Counties Photographic Federation (SCPF).
At the end of the season in May, the winners of our internal competitions receive Awards and Trophies. In addition there are awards for members who have made the best progress in both Prints and PDI during the season.
The President also makes a personal choice award for Exceptional Contribution to the Club.
