04/11/2020      “Creative” & “People” PDI Competitions night

Tonight’s the night to show us how imaginative you can be.  It doesn’t matter how you’ve created them, you can enter up to three PDIs which distort reality, which perhaps convey an abstract idea, which are contemporary, or experimental, or even surreal.  The annual “People” competition is also scheduled for tonight, entry to which is also limited to three PDIs per member, (not studio shots).

Closing date for emailed PDI's for Heat 3 of the annual PDI competition. (Any subject)

16/12/2020      “Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK” with Malcolm Hupman

Malcolm (program sec of Corby PS and member of Corby Wildlife) is a top notch photographer who will be sharing his expertise, knowledge and experience in photographing local wildlife.

The Rushden show has been a fixture at our club since its inception and now attracts a very wide entry, making it difficult to gain an acceptance.  Nevertheless, you might spot the odd image from little old Lutterworth PS.

10/02/2021       Conservation Trophy & PDI of the Year Competitions

Our judge tonight has the unenviable task of selecting two trophy winners.  The first will become the club’s “natural history” guru for the next twelve months while the second will take pride in having produced the best PDI of the year.


17/02/2021      “Exploring the Great Bear Forest”, with Simon Cotes

Many years ago, Simon was a regular visitor to Lutterworth before professional photography took him off to pastures new.  Tonight he returns to bring us his latest talk featuring the spectacular wildlife in the remote reaches of Western Canada.


Hand-in your titles for next week’s Cheney and Single Print competitions.


24/02/2021      Cheney & Single Print Competitions

This is the premier print competition night in our calendar.  There are four trophies to be won tonight and although it’s not exactly a lottery, it is true that “you’ve got to be in it to win it” so, good luck.  To enter the Cheney Trophy competition you’ll need a set of 6 prints (any two of which must be monochrome). The entries must illustrate 3 topics of your choice, (two prints to each topic).  In addition, there are three single print competitions, one each for Colour, Mono and a recently taken Mono Landscape.
