108th LONDON SALON OF PHOTOGRAPHY

YOU ARE INVITED TO ENTER PRINTS FOR THE 108th LONDON SALON OF PHOTOGRAPHY.

Closing date 20th May 2019. I am going to try to arrange delivery of Chichester Camera Club print entries in order to save on postage. Watch this space!

Accepted prints will be exhibited in galleries during the Summer in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Ireland.  

For full details of On-Line entry, rules and exhibition dates please visit the London Salon website www.londonsalon.org or contact Ann McDonald who will be happy to advise you on suitable images and the online entry system etc. Please bring along any prospective entries to the PAGB Group on 1st April

This is a very prestigious salon which was set up in 1910 with the aim being “to exhibit only that class of photographic work in which there is distinct evidence of artistic feeling and execution”. Members of Chichester Camera Club have been entering this salon for many years, with considerable success. The image featured above ‘1920s Flapper‘ © Glyn Edmunds won a rare London Salon Medal in last year’s exhibition.

Chichester Red Box Donation

I’m very pleased to report that the Club’s extraordinarily generous collection for the Chichester Red Box Scheme was handed over to the Chichester and Midhurst scheme representative, Lynsey, at Chichester College last week.

Lynsey tells us that with such a generous donation of £205 cash and a large box of sanitary protection goods, they will be able to also buy underwear, which while not usually donated, is often required. The items will be distributed across the area, which includes Bognor Regis. Lynsey also tells me that this includes small red boxes at local primary schools, secondary schools and colleges.

We have card a card from Lynsey, and as you can imagine, the about we were able to raise has been very gratefully received. Can I also add my personal thanks to you all for making this such a successful collection.

Tangmere Village Centre News

One of the many things that go on in the background of the Club is the liaison between us and the Village Centre Management.  Most of those discussions are about day-to-day matters, but there are some developments coming along that should bring very good improvements for us that I thought you might like to hear about.

The entrance doors and the lobby are to be remodelled, and the very good news on that is that the doors will soon be fully accessible by our less mobile members and be DDA compliant.  You can expect that around Christmas or the New Year. We also had an issue last week with cars parked in the disabled car parking spaces – not we think by our members – but you’ll also be pleased to know that the car park is to be tarmacked and when that happens, the disabled parking bays will be repainted and there will be eye level signs added to make restrictions clearer.

The other big news is that funding has been secured to greatly improve the audio visual kit at the hall, including fixed projection  screen(s). We are in discussion with the hall about the specifications for screens, and look forward to these changes which should be in the spring and will mean no more (or at least much less) carrying about of the screen for projection evenings.

And finally – putting out and stacking the chairs can be a real task, and while for the time being we are asked to stack and put chairs into the cupboard to take up the minimum room so other hall users can get access, the hall management will be looking at new mobile racked seating that will make life much easier for everyone.  That’s going to take longer so your forbearance and assistance in getting everything away at the end of each evening will be appreciated.

Novium Exhibition News

Our exhibition at the Novium is coming together this week – and starting to look very exciting.  Some of the working group spent Monday finalising the arrangement of all the prints, and on Wednesday and Thursday of this week everything is being hung.  

What a real treat – we have someone doing that for us, and it really is quite a task, so grateful thanks! There are a few pictures of work in progress below.

There is still some space for the Preview Evening next Wednesday 21st November, so if you haven’t yet replied to Laura Williams at the Novium (please see the separate post), please do so in the next day or two.

Any members who have greetings cards for sale, or even prints that are display ready and might attract sales, do please let me know as the shop is also being fitted out with a photography theme and we can have space there (at a 15% commission).
