We have entered a club panel, but there is also the opportunity for members to enter up to 2 images in an open colour print competition, and up to 2 images in an open mono print competition. These cannot be prints that are already in the club panel and images cannot be entered that have won certificates in previous SLF competitions, nor can they have been used in other disciplines i.e. PDIs. If anyone has any prints that they would like to enter, Julie will need the prints by 24 February at the latest, as they have to be handed in the following week. She will also need a jpeg of the image before 24 February to enter into the Photo Entry system before the closing date. These open prints will be prejudged and results/certificates awarded on finals day. Please email Julie on if you are intending to enter any prints.     

At the AGM, members voted for the club to take on a new logo. If you have an idea and would like to put together a design, please talk to one of the committee members. Thank you to the members who have already sent in their ideas!
