See Where We Meet

This is a special evening of two themed competitions, the Set of Three and the George Walsh Trophy

Each competition works as a single competition open to all members.

We don’t separate the entries into the four different classes which apply on League Competition nights.

Last season we were forced to run all competitions as PDI.

In one half of the evening we will judge the Set of Three.

In the other half we have the George Walsh trophy for documentary and photojournalism. 

For this year’s Competition Night on 9 November 2021 we are able to revert to the traditional print format.

New for this year: members must register their entries by uploading a PDI version of their image(s) using PhotoEntry

Jason last judged for us in the first lockdown, for the Society Competition Evening in May 2020.

The George Walsh Memorial Trophy

[from the Handbook]

This trophy is awarded to the winner of a print competition on the theme of documentary/photojournalism, in memory of long-standing WPS member George Walsh.

  • Documentary photography provides a straightforward and accurate representation of people, places, objects and events. It is used to chronicle events or environments that are significant and relevant to history, as well as those that show everyday life.
  • Photojournalism, associated with street photography, employs images that tell a story, usually news-related, in a creative, entertaining and informative format.

How to enter
