An evening where we show the best images shown in competition in the last year that were not commended, but which the Chair thinks are worth a second look.
Look through the images in the gallery below and select the three you like the best (obviously not one of your own!). Maybe it’s not a classic “competition image” but something about it appeals to you. Or perhaps you just think the judge got it wrong…
Take a note of the Title and rank your choices 1st, 2nd and 3rd (we may not have time to review all your choices).
Write a couple of sentences on each selected image – why you chose it, what you admire about it, etc.
Send your text as an email to Liz using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive by by 23:45 on WEDNSEDAY 21st February to allow time for us to prepare slides, ready for our meeting on 26 February.

Diptychs, Triptychs, Polyptychs and Collages Showcase evening
This is a non-competitive evening where members will show their best multiple image pictures.
This competition is about Diptychs, Triptychs and Polyptychs or other collages.
A polyptych includes more than three images.
Please combine the components of your ‘tychs’ into a single image for each entry.
The closing date for entries is 11:45pm on Monday 11th March.
This showcase is open to any creative image you may have and would like to share with us. Very often creative images suffer in competition with other “straight” images and so this is your opportunity to show what your imagination can do. Anything goes, completely abstract, partially abstract, multiple exposures, intentional camera movement or simply surreal. Whatever you like.
In December we had a group photowalk in Liverpool, arranged by our programme secretary Ian and also Glenys Garnett. We know that many creative images were shot on that day and so this is an opportunity to show the best of those too.
This evening will be a non-competitive, so there will be no winners or losers.
We have invited Glenys back and she will review the images along with everyone else and provide some critique and comment, but it will be an inclusive evening so everyone will be welcome to make comments.
To be clear “Liverpool” images are welcome (if they are “creative” ones) but also any creative image you may want to showcase with us is also very welcome.
Please add some comments about your image such as the location, why you chose to use a creative style etc.
Note: The closing date is 18/3/23 but it will help greatly if you can upload your images before then.
