The committee have decided to replace the current 52/52 with a 24/12 competition. In a nutshell, participants will upload 2 photos a month by the end of each month, for the year. It will be run in a similar way to the 52/52 with a few minor changes to the current rules. The New Rules will be added to the website shortly. The 24/12 will start in January 2018. More details to follow.
