Win £150 to spend with Imber Court Photo Training

Our 2020 photographic competition is open to all amateur photographers with prizes for the best images. Entry is free. We will display the winning photographs at the Canal Cafe at Chichester Canal Basin when it reopens; the best entries will feature in any future merchandise and Canal publicity.

Sadly, our 1st prize sponsor has withdrawn its offer due to unprecedented financial difficulties. But we are delighted to announce that Imber Court Photo Training has stepped up to offer a £150 voucher to spend on one of their training courses or for a 1-1 half day training session. Imber Court has an excellent reputation for its training and we are thrilled that they are able to make this offer. Do check them out
