Competitions can be a way of improving your photography by listening to the judge's comments and suggestions about your and other members images. (But remember it is one person's opinion and you may not always agree!) Competitions are not for everyone and you do not have to enter competitions if you prefer not to, though most members enjoy watching club competition evenings whether they have entered or not.
