What happens at your club?

Between 40 and 60 members come along to view their own and other members displayed photographs. We have a different judge each month that will critique and give advice on your photograph and then award each photograph a bronze, silver, gold, or Certificate of Merit (COM) (the highest award). The next month you may collect your certificates from the member table.

Certainly. You may even enter a “comment ONLY” image to get some indication of what the judge thinks of your image.
