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.

I am delighted to announce that Jim Munday’s imagePort 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
