Entries are invited each year for the DI Group's Print Competition. Every entrant is guaranteed at least one acceptance into the Group's touring Members' Exhibition. Prints are selected at the Group's Annual General Meeting by a panel of three eminent photographers, who also choose the RPS Medal and Trophy winner and the six RPS Ribbon winners. Selected images are published in DIGIT. The selected images will appear in a catalogue published after the event.

The Chairmans Cup - Presented by Barrie Thomas FRPS
Sue has been involved with the RPS for 40 years. She has sat on the Visual Art Committee, organised events in North Thames Region when she lived in Milton Keynes. On moving to Devon Sue set up The Visual Art Group in the South West. She has been an assessor for several years both on the Licentiate and Fine Art Panels and over the last 4 years has also sat on the Distinctions Committee. Somehow she has still manages to remain an active photographer although not as prolific as she would like. Her photographic styles are wide ranging but prefers to be out taking pictures than sitting at a computer making images.
My enthusiasm for photography began in the late 1950’s at school, where I learnt film processing and darkroom skills. When asked about my photographic interests, I usually say ‘anything that captures my attention’. However, my greatest interests have always been landscape and studio based still life photography. I gained a Fellowship in 2004 in the Visual Arts category with still life images, some captured on film and many captured digitally.
I joined the RPS in the mid 1980’s and have held several posts including President from 2007 to 2009, Regional Organizer, Chairman of the Digital Imaging Group, and Chairman of the Distinctions Advisory Board. Currently, I am the Centre Organizer for the RPS DIG Southern Centre. I belong to a Camera Club and also I lecture and Judge.
Caroline’s interest in photography started when she was handed an old SLR camera during a physics lesson at school! She achieved her ARPS in Contemporary Photography in 2011 and enjoys all genres of photography. Her own personal choice of subject matter is anything to which she has a strong emotional attachment or one that has an enduring expressive quality.
She was elected President of Bracknell Camera Club in 2008, a post she held until June 2019 year and was their Programme Secretary for seventeen years. She was presented with an APAGB in 2016.
She is passionate about the quality of images and plays an active role in coaching people to achieve both RPS & PAGB distinctions. In 2002 she became a judge for the Southern Counties Photographic Federation (SCPF) and in 2017 she was accepted onto the PAGB list. Caroline is currently a member of the SCPF Judging Sub Committee and is involved with the vetting and assessing of applications from potential new judges.
