About the Competitions

There are four competitions tonight; two print competitions and two PDI competitions.

Members may enter as many or as few of the four competitions as they wish.

See About for details.


On 19 April we have our ever popular Society Evening.  This is a light-hearted evening of themed competitions.

In a change from the normal League competition evenings where you compete in your classes, there are four separate competitions, each open to all members.

The entries in each competition must comply with the relevant guidelines described in the first section of Advice for WPS Competitions.

Members may enter one image in each competition.

The competitions are

Themed Competition (Print)

This year the theme is Wet

Portrait (Print)

A portrait of a person, or a number of people, who must be the main feature of the image

Creative Cup (PDI)

For an innovative image based on one or more of the author’s photographs.

It should be original, creative and avant-garde, originating from the camera and the photographer’s imagination. No limits!

Greg’s Egg Cup – Humour (PDI)

For a visually humorous image, with an appropriate title to add to the fun.

Technical quality is only a secondary consideration.

Glyn Paton should need no introduction to members.

He is an SCPF Level 2 judge.

He was WPS President for the 2018-19 season,

His excellent image “The Smoking Cardplayer” was used on the front cover of the 2017-18 Handbook.

For several seasons he ran the PAGB awards group, helping members achieve CPAGB or DPAGB awards.

His “Holy Beggar” image won first prize in Class A: People in the 2017 Winchester National Exhibition.
