*Monthly Image Competition 4 days left*

You only have a few days left to enter the competition.

Even though we receive over 1,000 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 when entering the Monthly Competition you are in with a chance of winning the 'Judges Choice Award' for June, where prizes are software, courtesy of Nik Software, and also a £100 cash prize sponsored by Fujifilm.

Don't forget all highly commended images are re-judged towards the end of the year by a separate panel of judges. All images that are upgraded to Gold are put forward to the 'Photographer of the Year' awards judging, where trade sponsored prizes and awards are presented to the overall category winners and photographer of the year at our annual awards dinner at the Convention.

So don't leave it until last minute, get your entries in today.
