The Competition

This is a local photographic competition with around a dozen clubs participating.  You can read about last year’s competition on Deeside Camera Club’s website.

This year’s judge will be Malcolm McBeath from Kirriemuir.  I would recommend browsing some of Malcolm’s wonderful photographs.
