FMC Photo Competition

The 2023 FMC Photo Competition will be held Wednesday 8th March. This is a great event and there will be prizes! John & June Wiseman will be doing the organising & vote counting on the night.

The categories are :

Landscape

Action

Humour

You can submit up to 3 photos in each category. The general principle is that the photos have been taken in the last year with only minor cropping or adjustments (no photoshop etc.). The photos are displayed anonymously and those who come to the event will be able to vote on Landscape & Action. There will be a creative scheme to judge the humour category.

PLEASE SUBMIT ANY ENTRIES TO JOHN WISEMAN ASAP, IDEALLY BEFORE THE END OF FEBRUARY.

(send me a message if you need John's email address)
