Our keen Argus Camera Club photographers were out and about this year capturing scenes from across the county, from Bexhill to Bognor.

Our members posted nearly 2,500 pictures on our Facebook group with everything from news pictures to beautiful landscapes.

Each month, we chose a theme and voted for our favourite picture, with the winner receiving a £50 prize and their photograph published in the paper.

Below you can find the 2023 gallery.

January - new

Our theme for January was "new" - be it the new year, new life or even new photography styles.

February - relax

The theme for February gave us some amazing pictures from our photographers who documented the slower pace of life for both us and our furry friends.

March - spring is in the air

As the days got longer and the sun made an appearance again, we challenged our members to capture the changing season across the region.

Philip Carter's amazing photo of a doe among the bluebells in Rudgwick, near Horsham, caught our eye and he snapped up the £50 prize, which he donated to the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

April - beautiful buildings

We challenged our photographers to search towns and cities for our April competition theme of beautiful buildings.

Historic buildings were entered alongside modern towers, including a capture of Worthing's award-winning Bayside development by Lisa Huggins.

Sussex looks beautiful from every angle - and just to prove this we asked our photographers to take a look up towards the sky.

It can be hard to get out of bed on frosty December mornings but not for our camera club photographers who were up at the crack of dawn to capture icicles and frosty leaves this month.
