It’s nearly here!  Final preparations are being made.  We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on either day or better still – both days!

We have a full programme.  There are entries in all categories in the National Championships – Novice, Intermediate, Club & Advanced representing several clubs/societies.  All national entries will be commented on.  In the Open Photo Harmony competition, there are entries from 3 continents – we’ll have to work on the rest – America, Asia & Antarctica!  So, a great chance to see the different styles in this medium of audio visual.  There will be also assessments for distinctions in Audio Visual and an opportunity to see some of the judges’ work.
