*** - The Competition Secretary is limiting the overall number of images for these competitions so that they can be judged comfortably in an evening. To achieve this, there will be two deadlines: an initial deadline and a final deadline as indicated above. All members will be limited to 1 image per competition before the initial deadline. The competition will then be re-opened with the final deadline. Members may then submit one further image to bring their total to two, should they wish, subject to the overall limit and on a first-come first-served basis. We encourage members to take advantage of the initial deadline, but members who miss the initial deadline can submit one or two images when it reopens with the final deadline. The competition will close before the second deadline should the maximum number of images be reached.
