New Competition in the Programme

We have added a new competition category for this season – Phone Only Competition.

This requires members to present a PDI of an image that was taken with a mobile phone. Any post processing may be done using phone apps or your usual photography editing software.

The images should be in the usual PDI competition format (Max size – 72 ppi, 1050 high, and 1400 wide). If you are unable to resize your own photos, please send them into the PDI secretary, and he will resize them for you.

Hand in for this new competition is on 31st of October, so you have lots of time to snap a nice shot with your trusty phone. Competition itself will be on the 7th November, as per the Programme.
