For news about competitions


For another chance to shine please remember that the next round of the Enprint competition will be judged on December 10th. This time there will be a theme of ‘THE BRITISH CITY’ but it can be interpreted fairly broadly, for example architecture, shops, people or events in the city etc. The city can be Chichester or London or any other location as long as it can clearly be seen to be an urban environment. So no landscapes, pets, foreign parts or wildlife this time please. All images should be given to Linda Bullimore by 3rd December – sorry about the lack of time but we really wanted to get one more competition in before Christmas. Remember that this will be judged on the same day as the next Beg/Int competition so please be sure that you don’t duplicate entries if you intend to enter the main competition as well. So ‘happy snapping’ while you do the Christmas shopping and good luck.

2nd Enprint Competition Results

The second Enprint competition was ably judged on Nov 12th by Peter Rocchiccioli and George Atkins. Once again there were some excellent entries which could be used for future Print or PDI competitions next season. Well done to all seven members who entered prints.

The results were as follows:

1st: Bill Harding with his image ‘China Seat’

2nd: Ed Feldmanis with ‘Wakehurst Water Gardens’

3rd: Bill Harding with ‘Liquid Lunch’

Congratulations to Bill and Ed.

Sussex Federation PDI Championship

The Club won two trophies at the Sussex Federation PDI Championship.

We won The Developers Round and the Overall Top Club based on the combined scores of The Developers Round and Open Round.

We came 5th in the Open Round.

Well done to all the selected photographers.

The individual results will be posted when we receive the official results from the Sussex Federation.

They will be posted on the SXPF webpage here:

On 12th November Sonia and Paul from the Sussex Federation will attend the Club to present the Trophies to us.

First Beginners and Intermediate PDI Competition deadline extended

Especially for new members, but for all Beginners and Intermediate members, who are not quite sure or ready to submit entries to the forthcoming PDI competition, there is an extension to the deadline to next Thursday 22nd October.  Please go to the PDI Upload Site to upload your images.  Contact Jeff Owen for any issues, or for new members unsure about resizing, contact your mentor.




First Round Enprint Competition Results

The first round of the Enprint Competition was held on the 8th October. Six Beginners, including four new members, submitted eighteen images which were judged by Peter Rocchicciolli and Glyn Edmunds. Congratulations to the following winners, whose images will be retained for entry into the final competition in  the Spring:

1st: Ed Feldmanis with “Autumn Mist”

2nd: Terence Powling with “Prince of Wales Quarry, Cornwall”

3rd: Ed Feldmanis with “Reviving Past Glory”

Thank you to all who entered and to the judges. Please don’t be disappointed if your image was not chosen this time round as there were many excellent images submitted.  The next round is coming up quite quickly, so could I please have your entries by November 5th for judging at the main meeting on Nov 12th. This will be another “open” competition so you can enter images on any topic, but the December round will be a set theme to be announced later. If you didn’t enter this month then now’s the time to get out there with your camera or dust off the back catalogue! For new members I should point out that you can enter any of your enprint images into the main competitions next season (suitably sized, enhanced and mounted) but you cannot use an image as an enprint that you have used previously for the main competitions. The same image cannot be used in more than one competition this season.

If you have any questions about the competition please speak to me at the next meeting when you can also collect your enprints from me.
