10 days left to enter the Monthly Image Competition for 2013

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 2014 Convention.

The Societies Business School has created an amazing reputation in a few short years, it is now an intrinsic part of the annual Convention and all those delegates who attend leave with a wealth of information to plough straight back into their businesses.

The theme of the Business School in 2014 is business development and growth - how to best manage your business with creativity being the consistent tread that runs through the programme. The school will be hosted and steered by Catherine Connor, one the most motivational speakers and one who has a great reputation for designing and influencing some of the most successful businesses within our industry.
