Last Chance to Enter!

You only have 2 weeks left to enter the competition. Even though we receive up to 2,000 entries per month sadly 100s of our talented members as yet have not participated. So for all those who haven’t submitted then make this month extra special by uploading your images today.

Remember that there is no Monthly Image Competition in December, so November is your last chance to enter and put you images forward to the Photographer of the Year Awards at the 2012 Convention.
