Tomorrow night we will be selecting the club's entries to the Angus Cup (digital) and John Senior Trophy (print) competitions. For those new to the club, each season we compete against Carnoustie Photo Group, Carnoustie Camera Club, Kirriemuir Photography Club and Mearns Camera Club. Each club submits 7 images to each competition, with a maximum of one image per author for each.
Last season Brechin retained the John Senior Trophy, and lost out on the double by a single point. It would be great to take both trophies home this year.

The judging will take place on the 10th March, at 7pm in the Cathedral Hall. Kirriemuir Camera Club are hosting this year, and the judge will be Ian McCurrach, who you will recall judged our Print of the Year last season.
Three images have been selected already by the 'shortlist panel', and the remaining 11 images will be chosen by members tomorrow from the shortlist of 49. We will discuss the images in the first half of the evening, and then you'll all be asked to be the judge and score them (score sheets and pens will be provided). I will then take the results home and tally the scores and will announce the results ASAP.
The selection will then go on to form the basis of our entry to the Scottish Photographic Federation Annual Portfolios later on in the season, so it is an honour to be chosen to represent the club at a national level.
The following week we will be looking at images provided by Carnoustie Photo Group as part of the Twenty20 exchange, but more info will be provided soon on that.
More pressingly, next week is the deadline for entries to the Main Project. The Main Project is a digital competition - members are to submit 12 images, including a title image, on a theme of their choice. The judge will be Steve Whittaker ARPS (maybe FRPS by then...). If anyone has any questions, please ask tomorrow or by email. Below are the 12 images from Iain McLachlan's winning entry last year - a perfect example of how to put a project together.
