    This evening Wantage Camera Club will hold the final three competitions of 2019. The trophies at stake are for 'Print of the Year', 'Projected Image of the Year', and for the best 'Monochrome Projected Image'.

    There will be an external judge and this is an opportunity to find out what makes a 'good' image as judges will always discuss its strong points as well as offer advise on how to improve on the weaker aspects.

    For more information about the club's programme see http://wantagecameraclub.co.uk/.

    All visitors very welcome; doors open at 7 pm. Please note: the fee for this talk is £3.
