Club Meetings

Our ordinary monthly meetings take place on the first Tuesday of every month, except for December and January. 

Ordinary meetings involve either a ‘competition’ or a guest speaker.


Most ordinary meetings consist of a themed ‘competition‘ for which members submit photographs: prints or projected digital images; to be critiqued and discussed by an invited judge and the members present.

Competitions are fun, but WCC members are not competitive.  The main point of competitions is for members to show their work to other members.  The advantage of bringing in  external ‘judges’ each month is so that members may learn from the judges’ critiques and thereby improve their photography.

The timetable and themes for competitions – known as the ‘syllabus’ is here.

To find out how to enter competitions, look here.

The criteria by which competitions are judged are here.

Judges award points to members’ images in our monthly competitions, and at the end of the year, the Competition Secretary awards trophies in various categories.

Guest Speakers

Occasionally competition evenings are replaced by special events such as a presentation by an invited guest:  usually a well-known photographer.


The club’s timetable sometimes includes workshops on various aspects of photography (see syllabus for details)
