Volunteers are also required to procure spot prizes. So put your name forward particularly if you are friendly with a local business person or feel ok about approaching people for contributions

The time scale for entry is as follows:
1: Book now by return email to stating the photograph size you wish to enter and if you have a club frame to suit.

3: Latest date for receipt of Titles is Friday 1st July.
4: Framing night / Latest date for collection of entries is Wed 6th July.
Please carefully note the above time scale as failure to meet these deadlines will mean that while your entry may be exhibited it will not be eligible for the competitions

Tempus fugit. Although it may seem a long way away, six weeks will close in very quickly, so get shooting as soon as you can
