3 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.

Forgotten the upload instructions - no problem visit the Forum,21861.0.html

The Societies' Forum

Keeping in touch with fellow photographers on The Societies Forum, we believe is one of the most significant benefits of membership.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, forum membership gives you the opportunity to:

  • Be at the forefront of knowledge sharing and best practice thinking

  • Keep up to date with current photo issues

  • Debate with experts in specialist areas

  • Network with other photographers

  • Add to your continuous professional development

The weekly competitions are popular with the members. Each week a new theme is selected for both the Wedding and General competitions and members are able to vote for the winning image from the previous weeks entries.

The judging process is held in public so photographers can watch the assessments take place; this in itself is an invaluable learning process. The winner will be announced at our prestigious Awards Night at the 2014 Convention in London.

"Your time is your most valuable resource. Some photographers believe that reallocating your time away from the most time-consuming edits will result in spending more time in higher-value areas, such as with clients, marketing or building business relationships. At just $2.50USD per retouch, many find to be a tool that helps free up time to spend on business growth. Find out today if it's a tool you should have in your bag!"
