The Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) is the umbrella body for camera clubs and photographic societies in the North West.  The L&CPU organise an Individual competition and an inter-club competition, both of which are open to members of affiliated clubs.

L&CPU Individual Competition

This year, members of the club entering the L&CPU Individual competitions made some progress, with a total of 10 images being held back for the folios, the collections of the top images in the competition circulated to all member clubs throughout the next 12 months.  This is Darwen's best showing for several years and, bearing in mind the size of our club, reflects well on the the quality of our work.
