XRR Visions 2016

This years Visions competition is open for entries and I would urge all club members to consider entering.

Dear Photographer,

Information about the competition, including the rules, submission details and entry fee (£5) are on Ian Hooker's CCComp website:

The closing date for entries is Sunday, 23rd October, and the final live judging for Visions will be on Wednesday, 23rd November at the Stanborough Centre.

Judging all entries this year will be Dr John Law FRPS MFIAP UPI Cr4 UPI Zeus of the East Anglian Federation.

I hope that you will again be inspired to enter our competition with its unique and entertaining format. Remember to save the best of the best image for the final live judging, as it may turn out to be a tie-breaker for the individual trophy and/or the prestigious Club trophy.

Kind regards,
