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.

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.
