NYSDPA competitions

NYSDPA competitions

The North Yorkshire and South Durham Photographic Association (NYSDPA) organises two annual competitions: the Inter-club competition, which the Wensleydale Camera Club can enter; and the Silver Salver, which members can enter as individuals.

The Club may submit up to six digital images and six prints for the Inter-club competition, and invites members to put forward images and prints for pre-selection in the Club’s entry.

Individual members may submit one digital image and one print for the Silver Salver competition. Entries are collated by the Club, which submits those entries on behalf of members.
