We enter 8 PDIs into this annual competition (maximum 2 images from any one photographer), and the other 7 Clubs in our Division (Division 7) do the same. The selection of 56 PDIs then goes round all the Clubs in Division 7 where they’re assessed and marked by an SCPF Judge. At the end of the season the marks for each Club are added together and the clubs ranked from the highest down. We’re currently in 4th place out of 8 clubs; we moved up a few places last season and hope to continue this upward trend in the coming season.


We submit 6 Prints and 8 PDIs into the Exhibition, which is held each year in Salisbury in January. There’s a maximum of 3 images per photographer with a limit of 2 in any one section.
