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.

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.

Congratulations to three PAGB Group members who had images accepted in the PAGB MASTERS OF PRINT Exhibition. This represents a terrific achievement for the club  at this prestigious exhibition. Only 60 prints were accepted for the exhibition  out of a huge entry.  The acceptance rate was less than 7%, so the competition was fierce. Well done to all. 

Sheila Tester had an image accepted in the Nature Print section (see image below)

John Howes had an image accepted in the Monochrome Print section (see image below)

Ann McDonald won a Gold Medal for the best Colour Print.  The image is featured above,  ALL WORK DONE © Ann McDonald
