KPS ‘Photographer of the Year’

and Monthly Club Competitions

We run eight competitions each year, to test our skills in the hopes of impressing our guest judges, who critique entries and offer advice to the authors. These competitions can be a good way to improve our craft and get critical feedback on our techniques and themes. These themes challenge different aspects of your photography.

The competition has three levels: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. The judges scores are tallied, revealing which member the club is awarded our prestigious ‘Photographer of the Year’ (PotY) title. The themes for this year’s competitions are listed below.
