Our AGM was held last night, to mark the end of the 2016-17 programme, apart from our Annual Dinner which will be on Thursday 1st June, 19:30 at the Cucina restaurant in Oxted (bookings now closed).
Members judged the best prints of the year – the monochrome prize going to Allister Frost, and for colour prints to Brian Smith. Well done guys! Our committee underwent a few changes, which will be reflected on our Contacts page in due course, but we do still have a vacancy for a new Chair, although John Howard has kindly acceded to remaining in post until such time a replacement is found, or he becomes unavailable.
There will also be our usual programme of informal pub meetings on alternate Thursdays throughout the summer, as well as our attendances at various local shows and fetes – details to be published shortly.
The final round of our Colur Print competitions took place last Thursday, judged by Roger Force FRPS. With some excellent images on display, the final winners of the 3-round sets were announced: Geoff Spriegel and Allister Frost shared joint 1st place for the Margaret Streeton Cup (Club class), and Clare Pickett LRPS won the David Moore Cup (Advanced class). Well done to all.
Full results are as usual to be found on our results page, and a gallery of some of the top scorers can be seen here.
Thursday 23rd February sees our annual panel competitions. Members need to make themselves aware of the requirements for submitting their entries – full details can be found here.
But in addition please note:
- PDI images are NOT required to be submitted for Print panels (Mono or Colour), but please do send the title of your panel(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- For PDI panels, we are reverting to the old PDI standard, which requires images no larger than 1000 pixels on the longest side. The file naming convention is as described in the above guidelines. Submission deadline is Tuesday 21st. (But the earlier the better)
