Annual Exhibition – update and key dates

The complex work in preparing for the Annual Exhibition is progressing well, and we will shortly be sending the catalogue of for print in readiness for our Pre-Exhibition Members’ meeting on Thursday 28th July, just a few weeks away now.

This will be the first exhibition for three years, due to the pandemic, and it looks to be as strong and varied as always. We have some 300 print images by over 50 different photographers and over 250 projected images which will run on a screen by the refreshments – you can enjoy a cup of tea and some cake and see the images!

No photographer will have fewer than three prints exhibited (because of space limitations we had to leave out a very few prints), and every submitted PDI will be shown. The range is – as you would expect – wide, with lots to appeal to all tastes.

Our Judge, Chris Palmer FRPS, has made his selections and there are some 30 cups to be presented and numerous certificates of merit. These will be presented at the Preview Evening on Friday 5th August at the Assembly Room, when there is also a buffet and a chance to see the Exhibition for the first time. All Members and their guests are invited to that evening, as well as judges and speakers from the season and our fellow camera club representatives from across the region.

It’s a small dedicated team working behind the scenes on an immense task of sorting, arranging, selecting and preparation and now it’s over to you to help make sure the Exhibition goes off well. Please look out for news items that will follow on how you can play your part in making our return to the Assembly Room successful, from how to set up your prints, to stewarding, helping with the buffet and distributing publicity.
