Competitions are a much-loved feature of the club's calendar. Qualified external judges give positive criticism of members' entries and there is a definite air of friendly rivalry. Here is a quick round-up of our competitions for this season. The results of the competitions will be published here with details of winning entries after each judging session.

A45 Inter-club Challenge
The A45 Challenge is our annual inter-club projected image competition open by invitation to camera clubs which are sited along the route of the old A45 trunk road (now the A428/A14).
It started life purely as a three-way competition between Cambridge, Ipswich and ourselves held on alternate years. In the intervening years we held a slightly smaller version with Newmarket and Stowmarket instead, then later the competition was enlarged to include all five clubs before further enlargement to include clubs from Felixstowe in the east to Bedford in the west.
As a result of the number of clubs competing the photographs we see are of the highest quality with every year bringing an improvement over the previous.
