I am delighted to announce that three club members had a print accepted in this prestigious exhibition. The selectors were looking for a varied exhibition of the highest quality and members of camera clubs all over the UK were invited to enter, with a maximum of only one print accepted in the exhibition per entrant. Overall only 60 prints were accepted into the exhibition and THREE of those 60 acceptances came from Chichester Camera Club. That is a terrific achievement for our club and we should be justly proud to be represented three times over in this exhibition. Well done Chichester Camera Club!
The exhibition will be on show to the general public at the RK Burt Gallery, 57 Union St, London SE1 1SG from Tuesday 5th Friday 8th December and from Monday 11th until Friday 15th December, from 10am and 4pm each day.
The three club members who had prints accepted were Sheila Tester, Peter Rocchiccioti and Ann McDonald. The prints are reproduced below.
Once again the PAGB group has fared very well in this salon. Sheila Tester has received an RPS Gold Medal and two more members, Lorna Brown and Ann McDonald had images accepted. Congratulations to all!
I’m delighted to announce that three club members have been awarded FIAP Distinctions this week.
John Howes EFIAP
Margret Preece EFIAP
Glyn Edmund EFIAP/gold
These are highly prized and difficult to achieve distinctions and are a reflection of the very high quality images produced on a regular basis by John, Margret and Glyn. Congratulations to all for a wonderful achievement.
I’m delighted to announce that our resident advisor at the PAGB Group, Janey Devine, has been elected a member of The Arena Group of Photographers, one of the UK’s most prestigious, invitation only Photography Groups. This is an indication of the high esteem in which Janey’s photography is held, not only in our area but also throughout the UK.
Janey has a very unique vision and style and we are very privileged to have her as a regular advisor at our PAGB Group meetings.
Congratulations to Peter Rocchiccioli who had an image accepted at the The London Salon of Photography. This is Peter’s second time having an acceptance at this salon, where only a very tiny proportion of the submitted images are accepted for exhibition.
The Scottish International Salon of Photography successes for PAGB Group members.
Once again the group has fared very well in this salon. Sheila Tester has received two awards and had nine acceptances. In addition several other members of the group have been successful in having images accepted, including Mike Davison whose image is pictured below along with one of Sheila’s images. Congratulations to all!
I’m delighted to announce that there were four more distinctions for the club at the PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit Adjudication in Croyden this weekend. Four members of the PAGB group were successful in gaining their PAGB Awards.

These are very highly desired distinctions and very difficult to achieve indeed, requiring a very high standard of photography. Congratulations to all of these talented photographers. Below are some sample images from their successful panels.
