We want to send an entry to the L&CPU  again this year, to be there by 28th April. This is before our own Annual Competition, so the pictures we send need to be ones from 2005 or earlier, which you don't want for this year's Annual. I need your pictures by 6th of April, but if you have good sport shots that you want for our own Sport comp, the 13th will do. There is a lot of work to do before I can send them. Please only give me up to the correct number of entries in each section. In other words, YOU are to choose which of YOUR images gets sent in, rather than leaving it to the committee or a sub group of the club.

The rules about mount sizes have changed since last year, so please read this carefully

.There are 5 sections, we don't have to enter them all. :-

1  Mono Prints                 (3 entries)

Natural History  "Images must be an accurate representation of the species or subject matter. Titles must be specific and correct. Creatures are expected to be alive and free in the wild.

Derivations or any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement are not allowed".
