Durham Photographic Society has a thriving competition scene in which all members are welcome to take part regardless of their experience. In fact some are specifically for less experienced photographers. As well as the fun of competing, competitions are a good way to get your work out there into a public arena and receive useful feedback from both the judges and fellow members.  By entering you are also providing the enjoyment, interest and entertainment of results nights for the whole audience.

Note: more historical information on competitions, including Trophy and Award Winners from 1950 and Club Competition Results from 2009 on the Archives page, and Historical Articles & Reports on the History page
