Just a reminder that the closing date for entries for PDI of the year is end of day Thursday 28th of May. Please get your two entries uploaded by then. Remember, they must have been previously judged in our PDI competitions this season.

It is open to all classes and we have seen some very strong Club and Intermediate entries this year.

PDI of the Year

I am pleased to say that Leo Rich, who was down to judge the PDI of the year as part of the exhibition, has agreed to judge the PDI of the Year as a stand alone competition on June 11th as a Zoom meeting.

You can upload your entries at the normal place:

Entries must be in by end of day 28th of May 2020.

3rd Club/Intermediate PDI Competition 23rd April 7:30

A reminder that our Judge Daan Olivier FRPS will be judging these competitions live during our scheduled Zoom Club meeting (details below).

I regret to have to inform you that I have had to cull one entry from both the Club and Intermediate classes. Judging online is much more difficult for the judge and we needed to reduce the overall entry count to around 50.

As before. entries that have not been judged are still eligible for future competitions, but not the PDI of the year.

Hope to see you all on Thursday.

CLUB CONTINUES ONLINE: Flickr Use Update

We are using Flickr for members to share images with Club members (only) online. In addition, Flickr will increasingly be used for theme – based exhibitions and other focus groups. We have launched 2 “Discussion threads” on Flickr.

The first is the Club’s 1st ~”Fortnightly Photo Theme” . This is open to all members, regardless of skill and experience level to share images fitting the theme. This round is Portraits. The more members who upload, the more enjoyable this will be for everyone. It is an opportunity to show off your favourite image and the learn from others, just as in a Club meeting. Every fortnight the theme will change.

The second is an invitation to all to make suggestions about how we might use Flickr, such as friendly competitions (etc.). This Discussion thread will be open until the end of this month.

To assist members with Flickr, two guides have been prepared. One is to help with setting up a Flickr account. The other sets out the few steps to take in participation in the Club’s Flickr site.

If anyone has any questions about setting up Flickr or accessing the Club’s site, they are very welcome to contact Jeff Owen, Jonathan Fiske or Jan Davis (CCC Flickr account administrators) whose contact details are on the Club’s 2019 – 2020 programme.
