A Happy New Year to you all.

The competition for the Architects’ Association Trophy takes place on Tuesday 16th January with a deadline of next Tuesday, 9th January at midnight. It is for PDIs only.
Please send in your images, maximum 3, on the theme of Architectural Emotion.
I look forward to see how you all interpret the theme.

External Competitions Report 4th Dec 2017
Bedford Camera club has entered its first two events of this season’s local external competitions with mixed results.
The deadline for entries to our next seasonal points competition is Tuesday 12th December, the same day as our Christmas dinner.
It would be really helpful, and would make life easier, if prints for this competition could be handed in on Tuesday next, 5th December.
If that is not possible then we could arrange a mutually convenient collection point before the 12th – please contact Linda on the compsec email address to arrange.
If there is no alternative, then they will be received on the 12th as originally planned.
*Just to remind you, this is our first themed seasonal points competition of the year with the topic of water.
You can submit two prints and one PDI or one print and two PDIs.
DEADLINE for Submission of Images
This is a reminder that your PORTRAIT images need to be with us by midnight on Thursday 30 November for consideration by the selection panel.
