Each year the Society has invited photographers, both members and non members, to submit work for its exhibitions. Due to the success of our new Open Winchester National Exhibition (Projected Images), the low entry from non-members and the large increase in entries from members for our Open Print Exhibition in 2015, the 2016 Print Exhibition will be for members only. This will increase the number of members’ prints that can be accepted.  
Members are invited to submit their work to this exhibition which will be held in Winchester’s Discovery Centre from the 21st May to the 12th June 2016. Three eminent judges will select work and award Trophies and Certificates of Merit in the various classes listed below.
