Throughout the year we have a number of internal and external competitions that our club members participate in. These competitions are judged by invited external judges offering valuable critique and advice so that our club members can apply and develop their photographic skills.
Our monthly competitions have various themes.The themes for each monthly competition are chosen at the Annual General Meeting held in October.

We have two annual trophy competitions for club members, The Sharland Cup and the Memorial trophy judged again by external judges. The winners of these competitions pick the theme for the following years competition.
