There have been a couple of minor changes to the programme to be aware of. 

Firstly, we have secured an opportunity to photograh inside the Warrington Town Hall, but unfortunately they have a council meeting on our planned date of 13th August and we cannot be accommodated so we are moving this event to Monday 20th August, a week later than billed. This will mean a three week gap between meetings.

The events from Jan 28th 2019 and 11th Feb 2019 have swapped over to accommodate the a availability of the guest Speaker. George Franks will now attend on Feb 11th and the competition is now on Jan 28th.

The programme has been updated on the website to reflect the changes.

 

An online gallery is now available of David Mellor's images that scored in this year's Photographer Of The Year competition. A chance to see all of his excellent winning images in one place! Congratulations David, some great images here as ever.

The competition dates and subjects are now available on the website, but please note that there has been a slight changes to the dates announced at the AGM.

In order to faciliate the availability of guest speaker George Franks, we have had to switch the dates in Jan/Feb 2019 so the competition is now on the 28th January 2019, and the guest speaker is now 11th February 2019.

Thanks to everyone that attended, some good suggestions and feedback that we will discuss at future committee meetings. As soon as some minutes are available they will be circulated to members along with the financial report. We also had 5 new members sign up at the AGM which is a real success, given the agonising for months over whether we should move from the club's home for som many years in Grappenhall to Winwick. We've picked up around 12 new members in the last 6 months (about a quarter of our current membership).

Tonight the club held the fourth and final competition of the 2017-2018 club year, and the theme was "Warrington".  The club welcomed Nick Berentzen from South Manchester Camera Club to judge the images.

Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition - the results of which will be announced at the next club night, the AGM.

Following the committee meeting on Monday 22nd, we have more detail about the programme for the coming year, that I am in the process of entering on the website. However, whilst doing this I note that the wording for the next event was still in an old draft format and didn't accurately describe the next session. The wording sent out in the club newsletter was accurate, and has now been replicated on the club website programme page.

The club exhibition is now up and running at Woolston Library. As you can see from the photos, some of our printed images are on display around the library on top of the bookshelves. The purpose is essentially to advertise the club, and we will seek opportunities to move the exhibition to other venues.

The gallery for the recent "Song Titles" competition is now available. A great set of images I am sure you will agree. Congratulations to the winners. There is one more competition to enter for the 2017-2018 year, and is themed "Warrington". Get started on your images! They need to be submitted at the end of January 2018.

Tonight the club held the third competition of the 2017-2018 club year, and the theme was "Song Titles".  The club welcomed Colin Douglas from St Helens Camera Club to judge the images.

Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition. The winners and placings were as follows:-
