Stewards Rota For Annual Exhibition

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help with stewarding at the Annual Exhibition. We do have some gaps remaining and so I am asking if you could consider giving your assistance. There are spaces for people who have never done it before when experienced members will give guidance as needed. There are also comprehensive instructions.

I shall be emailing some members shortly with the details of the current state of play and we’d all be extremely grateful and relieved if you could assist.

Do contact me on membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk if you can offer any extra help.

Final Round of the Small Print Competition

The Small Print Competition has been poorly supported this year and there is one final opportunity for Club Class members (Print) to enter on Monday 21st March at the Development meeting.

Images can be given to me at Thursday’s meeting or brought along before the Development meeting, with your name and title of the image on the back. You don’t need to attend the meeting but they are very GOOD!!

Please do help to make this a viable contest. There is a cup to win and the opportunity for the best 3 images to be displayed at the Annual Exhibition. If you have any queries do get in touch with me by commenting on this post or emailing me at membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk

Small Print Competition Round 3

I am pleased to announce that the delayed third round of the Small Print Competition will take place at the Development Meeting on Monday 21st February at 7:30.

As usual the competition is open to any Club Class member in the Print Category. Three small (max 7″ by 5″) unmounted images can be brought to the meeting or posted to me beforehand if you do not wish to, or are unable to, attend the meeting.

We have had very few entrants this year so if you want to be in with a chance of winning the cup at the end of the year then there is still time.

If you need to send me your prints then please email membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk and I can send you my address.

Second Round of the Small print Competition Monday 15th Nov.

This is just a reminder that 7″ by 5″ Prints from Club Class members in the Print category can be brought along to the Development Meeting on Monday 15th November for entry into the 2nd round of the Small Print Competition. The critiquing will take place at the start of the meeting so please be a little early if you intend to bring Prints. You do not need to stay for the rest of the meeting but it is always a good evening.

Hope to see a few more entries this time.

Small Print Round 1

The first round of the Small Print Competition was held on Monday, ably critiqued and judged by John Howes.

3rd Place: Madeleine Craggs with “Reflecting on Restoration”

2nd Place: Louise Le-Good with “Nature in Action”

1st Place: Madeleine Craggs with “Spring Reflections”

Congratulations to the winners and we hope to have a few more entries for the next round on Monday 15th November. You too could be a winner.

the small print competition

This year there will be a slightly different format for the Small Print Competition. We intend to run the competition in conjunction with the Developers’ Group which meets once a month on Monday evenings. At the first meeting on Monday 20th September the new procedure for judging and feedback will be outlined and also an idea of what judges are looking for in an image. The Developers’ Group is now open to Intermediate as well as Club class members so there will be a series of topics in addition to the competition.

All members who are in Club Class for the Print category are eligible to enter this competition and details of the requirements can be found on the website in the HANDBOOK which can be found and downloaded under the DOCUMENTS tab. Alternatively go to DOCUMENTS then click PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS then IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS then COMPETITION RULES. Briefly you can enter up to 3 small prints with a maximum size of 7 by 5 which have not had any excessive manipulation applied.

If you have 3 prints that you would like to enter into the competition then please bring them along on Monday or alternatively they can be posted or delivered to me before the first round on Monday October 18th. This year I shall be running the small print competition again (Linda Bullimore) but I would hope to find a replacement to take over this job once it is established in its new format. I shall be contacting eligible participants by email before the competition with details of how to get prints to me before we start meeting again at Tangmere.

Any questions please use the Comments tab here or email to membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk

Subscriptions 21/22

Just a gentle reminder that all subscriptions were due by 15th July. If you haven’t already made your payment we would be grateful if you could please do so before 31st July when your membership will cease, which I’m sure you don’t want! We continue to be very good value at £63 for the year, which is less than £2 for each weekly meeting.

We have room for more new members to start in September so if you have friends and family who might be interested please spread the word.

Annual membership subscription and UPDATING

As I hope you are aware the Annual Subscription for the club becomes due between 1st and 15th July.

This year we have kept the rate at £63 and both David (Treasurer) and I (Membership Secretary) would be really grateful if all payments could be made between those dates.

If this causes a problem please let me know as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made.

As usual an email giving the details for payment will be sent out in the coming days but please let me know at membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk if for any reason you do not receive it.

On another point I hope you all realise that you can view and update your personal details on the website. There appear to be one or two gaps where accreditations have been gained but not updated. The committee are not always aware of changes so you do need to let the Membership Secretary know of any changes, especially address, phone and email details. So please check that everything is up to date and let me know of any changes.

Many Thanks
