The year culminates in an Open Portfolio competition, which
like the Beginner's competition, is open to members and non-members
alike. In each of the portfolio competitions, six slides are
projected simultaneously and like the monthly competitions are judged
by the audience present.
Our website includes links to Members websites and each week one of these
is highlighted in the News.
BSoUP has its own Member's Forum accessible only to
members. This provides a means for the exchange of ideas and
information about underwater photography. Unfortunately the Forum is
no longer used by the majority of BSoUP members. We suggest instead
that you post your messages to the BSoUP Facebook
Group which has nearly 1,000 followers. You can still administer
your classifieds and competition entries here.
