As many Members will be aware, Tim Gould our long-standing External Competitions Co-ordinator has stepped down from the role. Unfortunately at the AGM held on Wednesday 20 June 2018, the position of External Competitions Co-ordinator remained vacant. Consequently, this meant that LBPC would be unable to enter any external competitions as a club for the 2018 – 19 season.

To limit the damage this would inflict on the external standing of the Club, two Members (Graham Meers and Paul Needham) volunteered to step in and run a limited schedule of events. Due to time and other constraints, priority will be given to External PDI Competitions.

Listed below is the full schedule of external competitions Leighton Buzzard Photographic Club (LBPC) would traditionally enter in the 2018-19 season.

Note: Due to time and other constraints, priority will be given to External PDI Competitions.

For individual competitions, Members enter personally (i.e. not as part of a club portfolio). You may submit your entries directly to the host club co-ordinator by the deadline or in some cases bringing them to LBPC by the LBPC deadline for onward transfer. The entry deadline is shown in bold.

Entries for club competitions will be selected and submitted by the LBPC competition coordinators. All club members are welcome to attend the judging night.
