There are some very good prizes apart from the chance to be in a national exhibition, Special Interest Groups Some clubs have small groups of members who meet at a frequency they agree ( it could be 1x per month or 1x per 2 months or 3x per year or whatever) on a non club night to follow their particular photographic interest.

Possible groups could be:

Street Landscape


Macro and/or still life



Distinctions etc etc,

whatever there is interest for. Could you please let Marian Guess know if you would be interested in being involved in a special interest group and the topic you would be interested in. This will enable me to see if there is enough interest to set up any groups.
