First Beginners and Intermediate PDI Competition deadline extended

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.




First Round Enprint Competition Results

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.

Photosprint Competition 13th August

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 evening ended with a constructive analysis of all the images and a discussion how photographers would judge images differently than artists.
