Weekly presentations

The club may be closed for meetings due to restrictions imposed to reduce the spread of the Cornavirus, but the show must go on…

As well as online PDI competitions, the first of which has just closed to entries, our members are receiving weekly presentations by email.

The presentations will build into a structured introduction to photgography and will be curated on our website soon after they are circulated. They will then be available to our members to review and for future members to see.

To view or download them, members should select the menu option “For our members” and enter the password. The next screen shows the resources available. The link at the top of the list takes you to a page with the individual presentations listed.

Club meetings suspended due to Coronavirus

The Chairman and Secretary have discussed the latest government recommendations and the implications for the club.

Whichever way we cut it, if we continued to meet it would be contrary to the advice and instructions issued this evening in the press briefing.

We will continue to monitor the situation and, as soon as we can see a change for the better in the situation, we will be back in touch.

In the meantime if anyone has any ideas as to what we could do to run a virtual club activity let us know. We are already thinking about how w might hold virtual PDI competitions.

Don’t forget that both are available to provide help if needed. Just send an email with a summary of the help that you require and your telephone number (for details see email circulated to members dated 16 March 2020) and they will get back to you a.s.a.p.

Programme

Our programme of events for the first quarter of 2020 is available here on our website.

Keep checking back to keep up to date with what is coming up: topics for later dates will be added once some final arrangments have been confirmed, and changes to the programme are sometimes necessary.

Competitions

Competition results

A list of the most highly placed images in the club’s internal competitions is regularly updated to include all our competitions so far this year.  It can be found in the members area of the website.

Competition rule change

The rules were amended to reflect a decision to increase the maximum image sizes for our internal PDI competitions.  Images may be no more than 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high.  The change has already been implemented.

A workflow for submitting PDIs

At the request of some members, we have added a step by step guide to help our members submit entries to our internal club PDI competitions.  It is just one approach; there are plenty of others!

We will take on board any comments that our members have and update the guide as necessary.

To view/download the guide, first go to our website and from the main menu select “Competitions”.

You will find a new section headed “How to ensure PDIs comply with club rules” which contains a link to the guide.
