External competitions

The Club takes part in a number of competitions organised by other organisations. These include friendly 'battles' against other clubs, and formal exhibitions/competitions. Here we will add a summary of relevant events we will enter as a club, or KCPA events that are open to individual members. Further details, including the closing date for entries, are available from the External Competition Secretary.

Members are encouraged to enter and attend these events. They are good ways of seeing photography from people other than our own members, which can prompt ideas for your own pictures. And of course you will be supporting Sevenoaks Camera Club at an 'away' match!

For the competitions marked with an asterisk * in the Closing date column, our External Competition Secretary will ask relevant members well in advance of any closing date to submit work for possible selection — by the Selection Committee — as our Club entry.

Some of our successes are given on this page.
