Awards for Ann and Sheila

We were delighted to see Ann McDonald and Sheila Tester both receive awards at the Club meeting on Thursday 21st February – and to have Peter Rocchiccioli present them in his role as President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation. A very ‘well done’ to both!

Sheila Tester, receiving the SCPF Roll of Honour, by the Federation president Peter Rocchiccioli. A distinction which she very well deserved for the work she has put into Chichester Camera Club over ten years, and before that was a member of Marwell Photographic Group. She has served on Chichester’s  Management Committee many times, currently as Southern Counties Federation Representative,  and is also an active member of the Selection Committee. Sheila is also of course absolutely vital is the success of our Annual and North Mundham Exhibitions where she is our catering supremo. A very well deserved award to Sheila for all her contributions to club photography.

Ann McDonald won the best portrait individual award at the PAGB GB cup for the open projected images for her Portrait of a Lady, and is shown here receiving the award from by the SCPF President Peter Rocchiccioli. This is a great achievement by Ann as there were only eleven awards given nationally and this was also the only one within the SCPF. Many congratulations to Ann for this splendid recognition.

Club success at new PAGB Masters of print exhibition!

I am delighted to announce that three club members had a print accepted in this prestigious exhibition. The selectors were looking for a varied exhibition of the highest quality and members of camera clubs all over the UK were invited to enter, with a maximum of only one print accepted in the exhibition per entrant. Overall only 60  prints were accepted into the exhibition and THREE of those 60 acceptances came from Chichester Camera Club. That is a terrific achievement for our club and we should be justly proud to be represented three times over in this exhibition. Well done Chichester Camera Club!

The exhibition will be on show to the general public at the RK Burt Gallery, 57 Union St, London SE1 1SG from Tuesday 5th Friday 8th December and from Monday 11th until Friday 15th December, from 10am and 4pm each day.

The three club members who  had prints accepted were Sheila Tester, Peter  Rocchiccioti and Ann McDonald. The prints are reproduced below.
