Almost half-way through 2017, and we already have some trophy winner, but some, I actually mean two. Peter Francis and Joyce Mollet, with Joyce winning three of them, nothing surprising really, not with the quality she come out with!
Congratulations once again to Alun for winning last night’s Open Print Competition as well as to those of you who managed to get into the top six. The standard of entry was very high and I thought Leigh Woolford was excellent, as usual.
This week I would recommend you pop over to the Trostre Camera Club on Monday night where you will be welcomed with a lovely buffet and can watch how our club does against theirs in the Brian Jennings Trophy competition. As this isn’t far out of anyones way it is a great chance to see how we compare to another club and to socialise with other local photographic enthusiasts of all levels.
On Wednesday night it is the hand-in for the first Open Print competition of the year. Lets make this a good show please.
For the newer members a couple of reminders:
A)Mount Board should be used and should be sized at 500 mm x 400 mm. The image you show within this can be of any size but leave a board of mount board for ease of handling. A backboard is also necessary to give the image its rigidity.
and to finish that email:
b) there should be a label on the top left hand corner of the back of the image. This denotes the correct way up (very useful for some images) and also records which competition that image has been entered for.
In club on Wednesday this week, several of our members are going to talk to us about creating a photo book. This is to a future competition so if you have never made one before I would suggest this would be a good evening to ask questions and get ideas.
Next week : on 25th we will be looking at your favourite images from 2016 so I hope you are all reviewing you cataloges for those special images.
Awards Dinner: on 27th at the Masala. Currently I have had a total of 3 email replies. I know more of you put your hands up than that! Let me know who you are and if you can bring a partner please asap.
