Here at the Sittingbourne Photographic Society our season runs from September through to May. That gives us all a nice break over the summer in which we get to practice and hone our creativity.

To help, we set our members a series of Summer Challenges - a kind of fun, informal competition with various themes that gets judged during a meeting in  the following season's. These challenges inspire some  wonderful images - please enjoy the winning images below.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Summer Challenge!

It was a close fought competition and lots of fun.

1st Place:    Terry Mahoney

2nd Place:  Marilyn Bliss, Richard Peters & Terry Ravell (3 way tie!!!!)

3rd Place:   Travers Bean

Check out the brilliant submissions below & thanks to all that took part!

  1. Something Rusty

  2. A gate or gates

  3. A boat or boats

  4. A sculpture

  5. A tombstone or tombstones

  6. A reflection

  7. An orchard

  8. Stairs or steps


This challenge can be done individually or in groups of up to three people. Three images for each category must be submitted and all categories must be completed. The idea is to stretch yourself over the summer break and give you something different to photograph.
