Photographer's Choice
(Annual Non Competition Assignment)


Each year the club selects 20 topics to work on during the year.  The purpose of this is to encourage and promote photographing a variety of subjects and to expand each photographer's photographic horizons.  it also provides inspiration for those days your inclined to take photographs but just don't know what to take.

At the end of the year, each photographer selects one image taken during the year of each topic (hence "photographer's choice") and the images are shown at the club's annual Christmas Party in December.
