Get snapping for Camera Club competition

WOULD you like to win a year’s membership to Dumfries Camera Club – and see your image published in the paper?

The club would like to invite you to enter your favourite digital photograph into their summer competition to win a free year’s membership.

And the top images will also be published in the Courier in September.

This is an open competition so any subject is permissible, from sport, landscape and seascape, to portrait, wildlife, pets and still life.

Images entered must be entirely the work of the photographer. Composite images are also permitted providing the component shots meet requirements. However, images from other sources including, but not limited to, royalty free image banks and clipart are not permitted, nor are those generated using AI technology.

Photos of children must be accompanied by written consent of parent or guardian.

The competition is open to anyone except club members and members’ families.

Only one entry per person and they should be submitted as jpeg files, SRGB, no larger than 2100 pixels on the longest side x 1500 pixels for landscape or portrait images, or 1500 x 1500 pixels for square images.

Entries should include name, email address and date of birth if under 18. Email [email protected] by August 31.

Dumfries Camera Club is an amateur photographic club, affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the Scottish Photographic Federation (SPF).

A spokesperson said: “It’s is a great place to share your photographs. We have talks and skills development sessions, as well as occasional field trips and, if you wish, you can enter our regular friendly print and digital competitions, where you can learn from the critiques by experienced judges and have an opportunity to expand your knowledge and take better images.

“Club members are always willing to help you progress in your photography.”

They meet every Wednesday at 7.15 pm at the Gracefield Studios in Edinburgh Road, with the season running from the end of August to the beginning of May.

And the 2023-4 season is about to kick off, starting with a talk from award winning landscape photographer Dylan Nardini on August 30.

The session will take place at the Baptist Church from 7 pm. All welcome.
