The PAGB Group will start the Chichester Camera Club season with a meeting on Monday 3rd September. This will take place at the usual venue, the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre.
We will meet at 6.45 pm for a prompt 7.00 pm start. Please come at 6.45 to help set the room up.
The cost remains the same for the coming season £3 for club members and £4 for non-members.
Members are encouraged to bring along prints and/or digital images for in-depth constructive critique. We look forward to seeing you and your images.
This group is designed primarily for Intermediate and Advanced members who are working towards the many distinctions available to them through the PAGB and FIAP distinctions route. The group will also be of interest to those who enjoy submitting images to both National and International Photographic Exhibitions and Salons.
Very many congratulations to Andrew Vance who was awarded a LRPS at the recent adjudication at the Royal Photography Society. This is a very desirable distinction which demands a high standard of photography. Below is one of the images from Andrew’s panel of ten images.
I’m delighted to announce that there were two more distinctions for the club at the PAGBAwards for Photographic Merit Adjudication in Chorley recently. Two members of the PAGB group were successful in gaining their PAGB Awards.
JEFF OWEN was awarded a CPAGB
PETER ROCCHICCIOLI was awarded a DPAGB
These are very highly desired distinctions and very difficult to achieve indeed, requiring a very high standard of photography. Congratulations to these two talented photographers. Below are some sample images from their successful panels.
Above is Jeff’s panel for his CPAGB. He achieved high marks in the adjudication and gained his distinction with plenty to spare!
I’m delighted to announce that Glyn Edmunds has won a Salon Medal at this year’s London Salon of Photography. Over the years only four Chichester Camera Club members have achieved this rare distinction, Glyn now makes this number up to five! Congratulations!
In addition to his medal Glyn has had two images accepted at the salon, the maximum number from any contributor. This is a terrific achievement in a salon where only a very small number of the submitted images are accepted for exhibition.
Glyn is one of our regular advisors at the PAGB Group and we are all very proud of his achievement.
LONDON SALON SUCCESS FOR PETER ROCCHICCIOLI
In addition to Glyn’s success congratulations are also due to PAGB Group member Peter Rocchiccioliwho had an image accepted at The London Salon. This is Peter’s third time having an acceptance at The London Salon, so well done Peter!
Please follow the link below for more information about The London Salon. The nine medal winning images and all of the accepted images are on the website, including those images from Chichester Camera Club members.
Seven members of the group entered and between them achieved 28 acceptances and three awards. It is a great achievement to gain acceptances and awards in this prestigious FIAP & PSA international Salon.
