External Competition – 2022

What is the Competition?

The CCC 2022 Open photography competition is our way of trying to encourage and foster the hobby of photography. We hope that people of Three Rivers and surrounding areas will get to enjoy and improve their photography – and who knows – you might even like to join our club! The best photograph will win a prize!

You may be an absolute beginner or be quite experienced, but there is nothing like practicing your hobby with like minded individuals and learning and progressing together. It does not matter whether you use the latest digital camera, or a small compact, or a phone; you can still take good photographs, and we can all take better photographs.

All you need to do is to send us one or two photographs that you like!

Good luck!
