There's only one way to find out! Your pictures are certainly well up to standard - if others who are even better apply that's another matter. Good luck! *chr

Me!

But at my age the aim can be a little off!

I didn't know that. :)

Paul, I would ask if you are entering but I guess you should be one of the mentors, not the protégé! :D

Well, I've heard of Mark Cargill; he's an excellent landscape photographer who specializes in workshops and I'd love to go on one of his courses.

Damian I've seen in action at the Circus event and both his working methods and end result are very impressive. He's also a great communicator and very charismatic.

Lindsay Dobson FBIPP, FSWPP, ARPS, specializes in portraits of both people and animals. Although she doesn't participate very much she is also a member of this forum.

The only one I haven't heard of is Mick Hutson, but that's no reflection upon him as music photography isn't my genre. :)

I imagine that it would be quite a hectic period if you entered the four categories and won them all! :D
