22nd December

Christmas Knockout 

The return of our 'just for fun' fund-raiser, where the audience acts as the judge. Two images are projected at once, and the audience must choose their favourite 'Left' or 'Right' ('Door' or 'Window' for those who prefer). Each round we whittle down the entries until we reach our final few when we choose our winner. Just-for-fun, so remember entries do not count as one of your formal entries of the season.

(Deadline: 'Straight out of the Camera' Competition, 3 images)
