Suppliers of Mounting Boards and Accessories

For everyone who attended yesterday’s TPS Meeting where John Howard shared tips on how best to mount photos for competitions, here’s his list of suppliers used by some of our members. There are several local shops where you can buy a wide variety of boards, tapes and tools, and some of the online companies also provide fast delivery.

Don’t forget: If you wish to enter Round 1 of our Colour Prints Competition which will take place on Thursday 12th October, .jpg files of your print images — sized to the same specifications as for our PDI competitions — must be sent to our Internal Competitions Secretary via by midnight on Monday 9th October. Each member can submit up to two .jpgs, and you should then bring your prints along by 7.45pm latest on the competition night.

Good luck to everyone. Remember: you’ve got to be in it to win it! And even if you don’t win, you’re only allowed to moan about the scores if you’ve taken part 😉

Competition Results – PDIs Round 1

We saw some wonderful images last night at our TPS PDI Competition (Round 1). There was a rich variety and it was especially exciting to see so many entries from our new members. Well done to everyone who took part!

Whether you agreed or disagreed with the judge is not important, what really matters is that you hopefully got some inspiration for your next photographic adventure and picked up a few tips on how do even better next time.

We’ll be featuring some of the photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages in future, but for now, here’s a reminder of the seven amazing pictures which all scored a perfect ’10’ from our guest judge Graham Johnston ARPS DPAGB. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in some of these:

CLUB (John Fox Trophy)

ADVANCED (Philips Cup)

Brilliant work TPS’ers! Our next competition is Colour Prints Round 1 on 12th October, which means that correctly formatted .jpg files of your entries need to be with Brian, our Internal Competition Secretary, by midnight on Monday 9th October.

You’d better get out shooting!
