Society Competition Evening 2021

On April 6th we have our ever popular Society Evening.  This evening is a change from the normal League competitions where you compete in your classes. On this night there are four separate, open, competitions.

This is a light-hearted evening of themed competitions.

The entries in each competition must comply with the relevant guidelines described in the first section of Advice for WPS Competitions.

Members may enter one image in each competition.

The competitions are (with the number of entries shown in brackets):

Themed Competition (41 entries)

Portrait

A portrait of a person, or a number of people, who must be the main feature of the image

Creative Cup

It should be original, creative and avant-garde, originating from the camera and the photographer’s imagination. No limits!

Greg’s Egg Cup – Humour

For a visually humorous image, with an appropriate title to add to the fun.

Technical quality is only a secondary consideration.
