1) ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL

21st Sept for Oct 19th

As the title suggests – any creature (lets go for living creatures please) in any composition or format of your choice. It isn’t strictly a wild life image so please feel able to tweak it a little to enhance the story telling impact of the image

2) WHATEVER THE WEATHER

12th Oct for 9th Nov

An image that depicts the weather in any way you wish to present it. Maybe finding drama in the skies, clouds, reflections, shadows, streets or landscapes or a long exposure showing a softer image.  Try to allow the viewer to experience the British weather. Please remember to be safe – especially if near the huge waves that hit the coast sometimes.

3) BEST OF BRITISH 

2nd Nov for 30th Nov

Slightly more challenging but look for something that is typically British, Yorkshire is full of excellent opportunities and examples. Put your thinking cap on and head out to get that winning image.

4) MAD ABOUT MONO

11th Jan for 8th Feb

This often focuses the eye upon details and shadows and highlights more than colour would and allows the photographer to play with the visual importance of various parts of the scene. The ability to manipulate light and dark without the structure and often restrictions of colour make for a very engaging photographic experience. Subject and composition open for the member to decide. Technically Monochrome can also be in Sepia tones.

5) WORLD IN MOTION

1st Feb for 1st March

Any image that shows some form of movement whether in the diverse world of nature, within your own family or the hustle and bustle of a city, town or village

6) THE PRESIDENT’S CUP

15th Feb for 15th Mar

Photography gives us the opportunity to see and feel others view of the world. In this image the viewer will see and feel the emotion (also the title of the image) that is being portrayed. Posed or candid, portraiture or landscape, beautiful or ugly – your image has to give the viewer a feeling. Memories and feelings are linked to visual triggers and this gives power and impact to photos that capture that moment.
