This coming Monday sees a derby competition against our friends and rivals Chingford Photographic Society.

This is an annual competition between the two societies and will be held at;

Chingford Horticultural Hall

Larkshall Road

Chingford, E4 6PE

There is a small car park and plenty of on street parking.

Each Society will present 20 digital images to be judged out of 20. The highest aggregate score wins.

Last year Chingford beat us 244 to 242 in a very close contest.

Come along and provide support for Walthamstow!!
