COMPETITIONS

The club holds six internal competition evenings spread evenly through the season for; Prints, Digitally Projected Images (DPI's) and Mobile Phone Images (MPI's) (Please follow the LINK for the Competition Rules). The images are displayed anonymously, and an independent judge comments on the work and groups images by merit into categories.

Each category scores marks towards the Club Leagues and Trophies are presented at the AGM for the most successful and runner up photographers in each of Print, DPI and MPI sections.

Internal competitions are a great way to learn by getting constructive feedback on your own photography as well as paying attention to the feedback on other members’ images.

The club also has a couple of less formal competitions, these being the Panel Competition which is held after the AGM, and the end of season Guys vs Dolls which to date has been a very close competition with equal laurels to both teams.

Images that have been recognised for award by judges during this and past seasons can be accessed from the menu above.

The Club also takes part in external competitions which are assessed by independent judges:

1. The annual Torbay Battle. The venue for this competition alternates between Sidmouth and Torbay. Each Club enters prints and DPI’s

2. The newly inaugurated annual Honiton Battle. This is a print and DPI battle with a mixture of open and set subjects.

3. The annual inter-club PDI competition organised by the Western Counties Photographic Federation, known as DPic. We enter this competition every other year.

4. The inter-club Print competition, also organised by the Western Counties Photographic Federation. We enter this competition every other year.
