Jim Fergusson     15
Kevin Williams  14
Mark Waidson    17
Peter Allies         16
Sue Allen            16

Total                    76

Which means that we're not last!!  BPC is a very young club and we should be very pleased with matching and even beating the scores of some very large and well established clubs and societies.

First flush of photos now up!

Round 5 of Absolute Photo's Best Camera Club competition is landscape and, as usual, Birlingham Photography Club members have risen to the challenge!

Visit our competitions page to see the first flurry of landscape images.  Deadline for submission is midnight Sunday 30th April, voting then opens and will close at midnight on Wednesday 3rd May.

BPC members can vote for the three images they think sum up 'landscape' - email your choices as usual and the top five, each taken by a different photographer, will be uploaded to the Absolute website for the judges to decide!

BPC members should send their titled images as JPEGs and votes to birlinghamphotography@btinternet.com

Fingers crossed for decent weather over the weekend!
