ROC Photographic Competition 2005

ROC Photographic Competition 2005

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded sponsorship towards the 2005 photographic competition by LCE Reading. This means that the prizes will be vouchers from LCE for spending in their shops on a vast range of articles suitable for photographers and birdwatchers.

The competition details have been posted on the ROC website and entries are invited for the digital bird photograph section, from members only this year, by 9 February ? follow the link for details. Members may bring their slides for the 3 further competition categories on the night of the competition, but please arrive as early as possible to aid the administration.

There will be a prize for the winner and runner up of each of the 4 categories, chosen by Gordon Langsbury and the meeting will then vote for the overall winner who will receive the Gordon Langsbury Cup. The winner last year was Richard Chaplin for his wonderful shot of Maribou Storks.

We look forward to seeing as many members and entries as possible this year. Non members are very welcome to attend at our usual venue for a nominal charge of £2 for the evening, payable at the door and refundable against membership.
