Leigh Camera Club
Promoting the art of photo imagery

Specific subjects to photograph next season 2016-17:


TOWIE 20th October - Anything goes as long as it is in Essex. Prints and Projected Images.


Reflections and Architecture by November, for our Dutch Exchange Camera Club: Fotoclub de Maasstad. We would like everyone to enter some images. See more on the News page.


Panel. 8th December - A change to the rules. You can now enter up to 2 Print Panels and up to 2 DPI Panels. If you prefer to enter 1 Panel for either section, that will still be OK too.

A reminder that a PRINT Panel may consist of between 3-6 mounts. A DPI Panel must consist of one DPI containing 3 images (any more and they appear too small on the screen).


SOOC. 20th April- Straight out of camera. NOTHING to be done to the image, not even cropping. Does your camera have creative filters? Experiment!


Challenge Trophy. 27th April = UK Travel

These should be new images never shown at this club before, not even in a knockout. Please check the rules.


Monthly Competitions in the League Tables are open subjects.
