The Society runs a competition for the best photographs for the following categories:
The competition will be based on a calendar year, not the season, so that entries may be judged before the Annual General Meeting in February at which the prizes will be awarded. Complimentary permits for the following season will be awarded to the winners of each category at the AGM.
The competition runs from 1st January to 31st December each year. All entries, for all categories, need to be submitted by 8th January in the year following (i.e. within 1 week of that years competition ending).
Each year we exceed the last years number of entries and the competition has been a huge success and we hope that this will be bettered this year, so please keep sending us your photographs !
