Dingwall holds competitions open to club members during the session. These consist of two open, one set subject, one Natural History, and one Portfolio competitions.
Each competition is judged and the best images are given credits. The member with the most credits from all the above competitions is awarded the Photographer of the Year award.
In addition, the club also has a 'mini-comp' competition in which three subjects are chosen at the beginning of each session, members can submit one image for each subject, and the images are judged. This is a fun competition in which many of the rules are relaxed and is can be used by those uncomfortable entering the main competitions.
