Monthly Competitions

Every month we hold a competition based on a pre set theme, for members. It is a great way of encouraging members to take out their cameras and take photos to suit the theme.

At the end of the Year all Winning (first and second place shots) go forward for a chance to win the Tullamore Camera Club Photographer of the Year Award and The Tullamore Camera Club Shield. 

Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the wonderful submissions by our members.

Notes on Monthly Photo Competition

Photos must be submitted by the Sunday before the Club’s monthly meeting, which is held on the final Thursday of each month. The deadline for receipt of photos (JPGs) is 6PM and any photos submitted after that time may not be printed and may not be considered for the voting round. 

The photos properly submitted for inclusion will be printed and mounted by a member of the Committee and will go on display on the night of the meeting where members in attendance will be able to vote for their favourite two shots of the selection.   We would encourage all members to attend these Club night meetings and see the wonderful photos printed out in their full glory – they can appear very different to your phone or computer’s screen!

 ** Note: Members who submit photos to the club, these photos may be used across all our social media platforms- facebook, instagram and website. If there are people in your shots please ensure you have consent to share the shots across social media**
