PDI of the Year

Just a reminder to get your entries in for the PDI of the Year. This year this competition will be judged by the same judge that will be assessing the Annual Exhibition entries.

The rules are fairly simple, just pick two PDI images and upload them. The competition is open to all levels and entries must have been submitted into previous PDI competitions this year (2018-19). Last year’s winner was from Club class, so don’t think this is just for Advanced workers.

Most people will probably choose two entries that scored the highest, but you may choose from any of the (up to) 9 entries you have submitted this year.

The upload site is in the usual place, get uploading!

Competition rules can always be found here.


Upcoming Competitions

If you look at the programme, or competition key dates, you will see that we have several competitions coming up which are separated by only one week.

In particular, the Advanced Print on 21st March is closely followed by the Advanced PDI on the 28th of March. Then the Club and Intermediate have their 3rd Print on 18th April, closely followed by the Club and Intermediate PDI on the 25th of April.

To save confusion, we don’t normally put upload sites up to collect PDIs for the same class at the same time. At the moment sites are open for the 3rd Advanced Print and 3rd Club and Intermediate Print competitions.

There is only one week between the closing date of the 3rd Advanced Print and the 3rd Advanced PDI, so the upload site for PDIs will only be available for one week, from 8th to 13th of March.

Similarly, the Club and Intermediate PDI upload site will only be open for a week between 5th of April and 11th of April.

Please take extra care to ensure you upload your entries to the correct site, hold onto your PDI entries and upload them promptly and it will be a great help.


The RPS subgroup will be meeting next Tuesday, 19th February, at 7.30 pm in the Small Hall.

Apart from our usual discussion of members ‘Work in progress’ we will also have a presentation of a recent successful Fellowship Panel from Daan Olivier FRPS who will tell us how he approached his Fellowship Project and what was involved. 

Visit his website:

The evening is open to all Club members and we look forward to welcoming everyone.

SCPF – Notice from Horndean – PLEASE BE AWARE

Subject: Attempted Fraud

Hi folks,
Please see the message from Paul Stone, Horndean Camera Club, below.
Sue Teagle
Secretary, SCPF

Hello Sue,
Could you please circulate this email to all camera clubs in the SCPF area.
A fraudster has obtained names & email addresses of our club chairman & club secretary & has sent an email in the name of the chairman using a slightly altered club chairman email address to the club secretary email  address using both of our names as stated on the club website. 
The email from the chairman is asking me, the secretary, to pay an outstanding invoice for unspecified goods. I am 99% sure that the fraudster has got the details of myself & the chairman from our website as they are the only contact details stated on our website. 
Should any other club have a similiar attempt made to demand that an invoice be paid by your club for unspecified goods, please notify me at & I will co-ordinate the details to be past on to the police fraud section. 
Thank you.  

Paul Stone
