Summer Challenge

Summer Challenge 2018
 “Ready for the Day

Each year we hold a Summer Challenge during June July and August. The closing date this year is 3 September, after which members are asked to vote for the winners. Each member may enter 3 images, to be sent to the club email address, with the same requirements as a competition entry – 
1600×1200 pixels max, sRGB, jpg. file name  -Title by your name.

You do not need to send all 3 at once.

The subject requires a little thought, but “the day” can be an event during the day – party, sports event, outing – or sun rising, birds singing (if you really want to get up early!) – or something symbolic – breakfast, toothbrush with paste etc. Be creative!

Summer Challenge 2013

This year the theme is “Summer Self Portrait”. 

2012 Challenge – Summer Sport
 With the Olympics dominating our summer I thought this summer’s website photo challenge
should be “Summer Sport”. Even if, like me, you will only see the main action on TV, I am
sure there will be plenty of local opportunities to get a cracking photo for the challenge.
