Open Photographic Competition 2023

As in previous years we host an Open Photographic Competition within our Annual Exhibition. Our aim is to encourage photography amongst everyone in the local community. The Open Photographic Competition is open to any non-professional photographers and entries can be on any subject. Prizes will be awarded in three categories;

There is an adult prize of one year’s membership of Swavesey Camera Club and cash prizes of £25 for the school age winners. The winning entry in each category will be on display at the exhibition on Saturday 25 March 2023. In addition all Open Competition entries will displayed as part of the online Annual Exhibition which will be running on this website from 25 March to 8 April 2023.
