Vote of Thanks and Christmas Special

Hi all,

This is a request for both the above.

We are short of volunteers to give the vote of thanks to our judges and speakers on the following dates. Dec 6th, Jan 10th & 24th, Feb 7th & 21st, Mar 7th, 21st & 28th, Apr 11th, 18th & 25th, May 9th & 23rd. This is important for the club so please be kind enough to let either Mike Hancock, Mike Harris or  Glyn Edmunds know by email if you are willing to give a VOT. Obviously we need someone for this coming meeting on the 6th. 

Now for the fun and games. On Dec 13th we have our Christmas special, Ho Ho Ho, which is a fun evening where we can enjoy ourselves by dressing in our favourite Christmas attire, enjoy some Christmas fare and drink while competing as teams in a Christmas quiz so I do hope as many of you as possible can attend. We need prizes donated for the raffle which can be brought to our next meeting on the 6th or on the night of the Christmas special on the 13th. For those who plan to attend could you also bring some finger food and drinks on the night for us all to enjoy.

MORE DISTINCTION SUCCESSES FOR PAGB GROUP MEMBERS

TWO MORE DISTINCTIONS FOR PAGB GROUP MEMBERS

I’m delighted to announce that there were two more distinctions for the club at the PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit Adjudication in Chorley recently. Two members of the PAGB group were successful in gaining their PAGB Awards.

JEFF OWEN was awarded a CPAGB

PETER ROCCHICCIOLI was awarded a DPAGB

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

Above is Jeff’s panel for his CPAGB. He achieved high marks in the adjudication and gained his distinction with plenty to spare!

London Salon Medal for Glyn Edmunds!

I’m delighted to announce that Glyn Edmunds has won a Salon Medal at this year’s London Salon of Photography. Over the years only four Chichester Camera Club members have achieved this rare distinction, Glyn now makes this number up to five! Congratulations!

In addition to his medal Glyn has had two images accepted at the salon, the maximum number from any contributor. This is a terrific achievement in a salon where only a very small number of the submitted images are accepted for exhibition.

Glyn is one  of our regular advisors at the PAGB Group and we are all very proud of his achievement. 

 

LONDON SALON SUCCESS FOR PETER ROCCHICCIOLI

In addition to Glyn’s success congratulations are also due to PAGB Group member Peter Rocchiccioli who had an image accepted at The London Salon. This is Peter’s third time having an acceptance at The London Salon, so well done Peter!
