Especially for new members, but for all Beginners and Intermediate members, who are not quite sure or ready to submit entries to the forthcoming PDI competition, there is an extension to the deadline to next Thursday 22nd October. Please go to the PDI Upload Site to upload your images. Contact Jeff Owen for any issues, or for new members unsure about resizing, contact your mentor.
The first round of the Enprint Competition was held on the 8th October. Six Beginners, including four new members, submitted eighteen images which were judged by Peter Rocchicciolli and Glyn Edmunds. Congratulations to the following winners, whose images will be retained for entry into the final competition in the Spring:
1st: Ed Feldmanis with “Autumn Mist”
2nd: Terence Powling with “Prince of Wales Quarry, Cornwall”
3rd: Ed Feldmanis with “Reviving Past Glory”
Thank you to all who entered and to the judges. Please don’t be disappointed if your image was not chosen this time round as there were many excellent images submitted. The next round is coming up quite quickly, so could I please have your entries by November 5th for judging at the main meeting on Nov 12th. This will be another “open” competition so you can enter images on any topic, but the December round will be a set theme to be announced later. If you didn’t enter this month then now’s the time to get out there with your camera or dust off the back catalogue! For new members I should point out that you can enter any of your enprint images into the main competitions next season (suitably sized, enhanced and mounted) but you cannot use an image as an enprint that you have used previously for the main competitions. The same image cannot be used in more than one competition this season.
If you have any questions about the competition please speak to me at the next meeting when you can also collect your enprints from me.
The deadline for entries is today (8th October). If you have not uploaded your entries please go to The Upload Site and select the appropriate competition. If you have any issues please contact me (Jeff Owen).
It has been decided to extend the deadline for submission of entries for the first PDI competition until Thursday 8th October. This is because of delays in getting the upload site published and to make sure everyone has time to get their entries in.
Please go to The Upload Site and select the appropriate competition. If you have any issues please contact me (Jeff Owen) at:
We had 6 participants, Jan Davis, Andy Dulson, Jeff and Lynne Owen, Mem Baybars and Dave Abbott in the Photosprint. We met up at Eastgate Square and were given the theme “Colour” one hour later we down loaded the images at the “Four Chesnuts” pub and viewed the results on their TV. The judging was performed by artist Ghislaine Davis.
The winner was Mem Baybars
The runner up was Jeff Owen
And third prize was Andy Dulson
Highly Commended was the image by Dave Abbott
The evening ended with a constructive analysis of all the images and a discussion how photographers would judge images differently than artists.
