I am delighted to announce that Jim Munday’s image Port in a Storm (above) has been chosen by the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) to represent England/Northern Ireland in the FIAP Colour Print Biennial 2019.
It is a great honour for the club that the work of one of our members has been chosen to represent the country in this very prestigious Biennial competition. Congratulations Jim!
The results of the survey of Members on the policy for presenting Certificates of Merit for Club competitions was reviewed by the Management Committee on 11th March. In total there were 22 responses (15% of the membership) and of these:
12 voted for option 3 – that certificates be available only on the website so those who wished to do so could download their own copy;
5 voted that the current policy be continued – certificates presented for marks of 9, 9.5 and 10 and
5 voted for certificates to be presented for those gaining a mark of 10 but for 9 and 9.5 these be available on the website
Whilst the majority preferred the website only option the Management Committee were aware that those who support the status quo and variations of it felt strongly that to have a policy of Certificates being only available on the website undermined their value.
After considering all options the Management Committee decided that Certificates of Merit will be presented on the night for all those achieving a mark of 10 for both prints and PDIs and in addition Certificates for those achieving 9, 9.5 and 10 will also be produced on the website for download (see Jeff’s post below). I hope all members will feel this is an acceptable compromise
If you look at the programme, or competition key dates, you will see that we have several competitions coming up which are separated by only one week.
In particular, the Advanced Print on 21st March is closely followed by the Advanced PDI on the 28th of March. Then the Club and Intermediate have their 3rd Print on 18th April, closely followed by the Club and Intermediate PDI on the 25th of April.
To save confusion, we don’t normally put upload sites up to collect PDIs for the same class at the same time. At the moment sites are open for the 3rd Advanced Print and 3rd Club and Intermediate Print competitions.
There is only one week between the closing date of the 3rd Advanced Print and the 3rd Advanced PDI, so the upload site for PDIs will only be available for one week, from 8th to 13th of March.
Similarly, the Club and Intermediate PDI upload site will only be open for a week between 5th of April and 11th of April.
Please take extra care to ensure you upload your entries to the correct site, hold onto your PDI entries and upload them promptly and it will be a great help.
Congratulations to PAGB Member ROSS LANEY who won a Gold Medal and a Bronze Medal in the Miroc Digital Circuit for his image Crown Mines, Cornwall (featured). In addition Ross also had twelve acceptances in this circuit. The Miroc Circuit is an international salon in which the images are judged separately in four different countries, Serbia, South Africa, Russia and Norway. Well done Ross!
