The entries for the PDI of the year are less than those possible as many of us missed the deadline as we were preoccupied with the exhibition and the deadline was not promoted. We have extended the deadline for uploading to Thursday 26th midnight. Find your favourite PDI’s submitted this season and pop 2 into the upload site.
The PDI of the Year competition is open to entrants from all classes. Each will submit two images which have been previously submitted this seasons PDI competitions. These images do not have to have been awarded a credit score. Marks are not awarded in this competition. The judge will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and may award certificates of merit if felt appropriate. The Waddington Cup will be awarded to the entrant in 1st place.
Every member will have at least one image shown at the annual exhibition so please enter your images before the deadline tomorrow Thursday 12th May. Entries are made using the competition entry system here for a maximum of 4 PDI’s and 6 prints. http://www.photocompentries.net/?org=chichestercc
The prints have to be put in the box at the meeting tomorrow.
