Club Competitions

There are two competitions within the Club, the monthly Hanafins and the main Print and Projected competition. You will find more detailed information the club competitions rules page.

Meetings are held on the Second and Fourth Monday of each month and include competition results, guest speakers, training, informative lectures, slideshows, workshops and most of all supper.

We endeavour to provide an environment that suits all level of photographers from Novice to Expert. The club has a wide membership base that ranges from beginners to professionals.

Try your hand at competitions – it is the best way to get feedback on your photos and to learn from. We suggest you start softly in the Novice grade and then move up from there. Remember even the best photographers were once beginners and there are no bad photographs, just things to improve and learn from.

 We look forward to getting to know you over the coming months . lf you have any questions or issues about the club, please do not hesitate to contact the club or a committee member. Please see the Contact Us page.
