Selection Committee Need your Prints

On Friday 24th we are selecting for 3 competitions and we require some of your prints for consideration.

I have asked for some particular ones but we need some more from all classes.

Please bring 2 or 3 prints that may have scored well or some new ones that you may feel they should score well.

Please support us by bringing your work on Thursday.

Thank you.

Participation in Selection Committee Activities

The Club Selection Committee has worked together for several years and has helped the Club to be one of the most successful within the Southern Counties Photographic Federation.

We do try to encourage all members to participate in the Club activities and in particular competitions. We predomintaly encourage Club & Intermediate Classes by selecting their images to represent Chichester CC particularly in the Sussex Federation competitions.

I would like to encourage more members to consider getting on the Selection Committee principally from the Advanced class as this is the first requirement. However, I want to persuade all members to consider becoming an observer. This does not require any special skills or knowledge but the willingness to learn. Two of our current Selection Committee members started as observers and are very accomplished photographers, regularly getting International acceptances and awards. What it does require is to attend the selection days and some external exhibitions. There are no restrictions on how many observers we have within reason and this could help with inspiration for your own photography.

If you are interested in either coming along as an observer or wanting to become part of the Selection Committee please e-mail me at Rocchiccioli.p@rocchiccioli.plus.com or call on 02392 467695. If you want to discuss your thoughts with me please see me at the Club or just call.

Novium Museum – Deadline for submissions

Plans for our very special exhibition at the Novium, Chichester’s district museum are progressing really well.  A very varied exhibition is coming together featuring work from our archive – including lantern slides from the early days of the Club, which started in 1893 as the Chichester Photographic Society.

As well as a section of our contemporary work. a large part of the exhibition will be photographs drawn from across the Chichester district area that show activities, the people and the geography of this diverse area.  Club members have been submitting their images, many drawn from their back catalogues, such as Dave Abbott’s  late 1980’s image above, for this part of the exhibition and the deadline in now looming, Thursday 4th October.

We would like lots of images, and you can submit either prints, which should be unmounted and either A4 or A3, or you can upload through the normal Photocomp routed digital images.  Prints should have your name, the title, the location and the date of the photograph, and digital image titles should include the location and date too please.

The usual suspects are of course Goodwood, Chichester City, the Weald and Downland Museum, the Witterings and Selsey and West Dean, so we would particularly welcome images from outside that area, even slightly over the borders too. Unlike the Club’s 10 Miles of Chichester competition for the Annual Exhibition, these do not need to be immediately recognisable locations.

The exhibition will open to the public on 24th November and runs through until 10th March 2019.
