Competition Deadlines approaching!

Firstly I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. Secondly, please can I remind you all that the deadline for submission of competition M4 is Sunday 3rd January and the Knockout images are also due. The deadline for this has been extended as we have so far had a poor response, so please 🙏 dig deep into your archives if necessary and enter some images 😊 I do appreciate it is difficult having the closing date so close to the Christmas period and many of us have struggled to take new images over lockdown. Entries for the one print and folio are also due next week on 7th January. Anyone who needs help with any of the rules, please ask 🙂 Hope to see you all on Thursday. Zoom link will be sent via email in the next few days.
