I’m delighted to announce that Lorna Brown EFIAP, has won a Salon Medal at this year’s London Salon of Photography. Over the years only five Chichester Camera Club members have achieved this rare distinction, Lorna now takes this number up to six!
In addition to her medal Lorna has had two images accepted at the salon. This is a significant achievement in a salon where only a very small number of submitted prints are accepted for exhibition. All of the accepted images may be viewed on the Salon website here http://www.londonsalon.org/2019-salon/4594634346
I am delighted to announce that I’ve just heard from Dave Coates that ALL the applications for FIAP Distinctions from Chichester Camera Club have been successful. Congratulations to the following four Chichester Camera Club members who have gained new FIAP distinctions.
The PDI of the Year competition is open to all members who have submitted images into PDI competitions during the 2018-19 programme year and 2 of those entries may be entered into the PDI Of the Year competition through the usual upload portal. Any images submitted must be as in their original entry i.e. no further reworking of the image is allowed
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.
Phil Shaw has revised and updated the Guidance Notes for Entrants for the Annual Exhibition in August 2019. The full text of the Guidance can be found on the Website under the ‘Exhibitions’ heading then drop down to the 3rd item where you will see the Guidance Note. The key points are that the closing date for entries is Thursday 16th May and all members may enter up to 6 prints, 6 PDI’s and up to 2 PDI’s for entry to the PDI of the Year competition.
Please read the new Guidance Note very carefully because a number of elements have changed for 2019. As usual, all entries must be uploaded through the Club’s normal up-load system – Photocomp in the same way as for Club competitions. Hopefully the Guidance is self explanatory but any queries may be raised with Phil at our regular Thursday night meetings
The next main Club meeting on Thursday 4th April will be the Print Panels Competition where those wishing to enter must bring their prints (between 3 and 6) on the night. The full rules of this competition are set out on the Club website under the main heading of ‘Competitions’ then on the drop down menu ‘Competition Rules Revised March 2019’ then scroll down to the heading ‘Print Panel Competition’.
Twenty four clubs from the Federation took part in the PDI Championships and twenty one clubs took part in the Print Championshiip. Chichester Camera Club were the winners in both competitions.
Chichester members won a Gold Medal, a Silver Medal, and a total of five Highly Commended Certificates. Congratulations to everyone who had images in the competition, each image contributed to our final result.
YOU ARE INVITED TO ENTER PRINTS FOR THE 108th LONDON SALON OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
Closing date 20th May 2019. I am going to try to arrange delivery of Chichester Camera Club print entries in order to save on postage. Watch this space!
Accepted prints will be exhibited in galleries during the Summer in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Ireland.
