Entry to this competition has been re-opened. It will run on-line as the first competition for the 2020/21 season.

Because this competition was held over from last season there are a few changes to the usual entry system and rules. The competition will be run on-line and therefore as a PDI ONLY competition.

NOTE: You may now enter up to 5 PDI images for this competition, the ‘Type’ box should be set as PDI, however entries already received will be carried forward and entered as PDIs. You do not need to change the type.

If you want to swap images which you have already uploaded you can edit your entry in the usual way up to the closing date.

The Closing Date for entries is Sunday 6th September 11:45pm to allow for the images to be prepared and sent to our judge.

The subject for our first competition for 2020/21 is ‘Looking Through’ (carried forward from last season), no doubt there will be lots of views through windows and doors but can you think outside the box?
