Member Western Counties Photographic Federation   §  Affiliated to Photographic Alliance of GB

Just a reminder and some guidance about the subjects for our upcoming competitions.

But first of all, we would like to emphasize that we don’t want set subjects to put anyone off entering competitions: some members find set subjects difficult and fear their attempts are not good enough and thus do not enter.  If you are really unsure, do let Chris or Helen see your photo in good time so they can try to give you some initial feedback.  Remember it is better to enter a mediocre image rather than not enter anything!!!

  • First round of the Shuffell Trophy, Thursday 11th October:  Your first print and/or PDI should be “Shadows” and your second print and/or PDI should be “Open”

We hope to be able to find some strong “Shadow” contenders from this competition as our entry for the annual Bradford Abbas Shield inter-club competition later in the month.


  • Ladies v Gents, 10th January 2019:Set subject for any entries is “Fluid”.  Please see our post on the web about how this can be interpreted, remembering this is a fun competition where everyone who submits one or more entries will have at least one selected by the team leaders.  We always hope everyone will enter something.

For all other competitions, the subject is “Open”, i.e. any subject you like!

 As ever, do please ask if you would like help.
