PAGB Masters of Print 2021

Opportunities to enter printed images are few and far between just now, but the PAGB Masters of Print offers just that. This prestigious competition is open now and this is call to Club members to take part.

The competition is open to members of PAGB affiliated Clubs (such as Chichester Camera Club) and you can enter up to five images in any mix of the three categories, mono, colour and nature. Images can be printed at any size on A3 or 16 x 12 paper, with some restrictions on photographs that have been used in inter-club competitions in the past three years. You can find the full details and rules at http://www.thepagb.org.uk/competitions/pagb-masters-of-print/

Peter Rocchiccioli has kindly offered to co-ordinate entries – you’ll need to send your entries to Peter at Ludlow, Copse Lane, Hayling Island, Hants, PO11 0QA by 15th February and Peter will forward them to the PAGB. As the PAGB has postponed the deadline, prints now need to be with Peter by 22nd March.

Club members have had some good successes in recent years with Masters of Print, the featured successful image here is Jim Mundy’s Port in a Storm

PAGB GROUP VIRTUAL MEETING MONDAY 4TH january 7.15

The next meeting of the PAGB Group will be on Monday 4th January. Because of the pandemic of Covid-19 this will be a virtual meeting once again. All club members are welcome. Please log on at 7.15 so that we may make a prompt start to the meeting at 7.30 sharp.

The PAGB Distinctions group has been set up to help people work towards the many distinctions available to them through the PAGB and FIAP distinctions route. We also encourage members to enter images into both National and International Photographic Salons. A large part of the meeting is devoted to image critique, where members ask for advice on images which they may be considering for a Distinction panel or for submission to a Photographic Salon. Not everyone in the group is ready yet for Distinctions or Salons though, some members submit images simply because they want some feedback. So please join us via Zoom and observe what we do. You will see some wonderful images and will pick up tips on image improvement which should prove very useful. If you would like to submit an image for critique please email me, Ann McDonald, at pagbgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk and I will send you details. 

This month, in addition to image critique we will take a look at how to keep your salon acceptance records in a form that is compatable with the FIAP Dossier.
