In his speech during opening night chairman Chris drew our attention to the programme for the year ahead and he urged us all to take part in the ‘Summer Challenge’.
The theme for this competition is ‘Nature’. As we all know, Nature photo competitions have very strict rules, but for this occasion the rules have been somewhat relaxed to encourage as much participation as possible. Under normal conditions ‘the human element and man cultivated hybrid-plants’ are excluded , but on this occasion you will be allowed to take pictures in your own garden. The story telling value of the image is as important as the pictorial and technical quality, (you are allowed to sharpen and use HDR etc. if you so wish), but any form of manipulation which alters the truth of the photographic statement is still not allowed.
