Amanda had received from the CACC a summary of the External Competitions currently available.
As the new season starts, there are many events where Clubs and their members are able to participate. Hopefully they are of interest but, with so many events, timescales are complex.
Most Clubs join in the Chilterns Rosebowl, and you may have local inter-Club events all with their detailed hosting and timetables.
Individual members can submit 3 projected images for the fee of £5. Entries, preferably on- line, by Saturday 28th October. The event is at XRR, 8pm, Wednesday 29th November. Groups of 3 individual entries can be nominated as a Club. www.xrrphoto.org.uk
Chiltern ImageZ Exhibition
Individual members can submit 3 prints for the fee of £5. The closing date is Wednesday 29th November, with a collection point at XRR Visions. The selection commentary is at ImageZ, 7pm, Sunday 3rd December, when unselected prints can be collected. The selected prints will be shown at the Queens Park Centre, Aylesbury between 23rd January and 9th February, after which prints can be collected. www.imagezcameraclub.co.uk
