Ian and Bernard have managed to resecure the services of guest judges and speakers for new dates, so our programme is taking shape. You will notice the forthcoming events in the near future are now all settled and visible in the sidebar and on the events page. Over the coming days the entire programme will be rebuilt and visible on the website.

The last scheduled committee meeting of the year took place on Monday 16th January. Top of the agenda was the aforementioned scheduling mishap. It appears as though when we were setting this years programme (12-18 months ago) we took a 3 week break over Christmas and New Year. This had the effect of offsetting our program by a week, causing a clash with the Art Club.

As those of you whom attended tonight will know, there has been a scheduling mishap for the club events.

We usually alternate Monday nights with the Art Group who meet in the weeks between the Photography Club meetings.

Somehow we have both managed to book the same Monday's throughout 2016. This was likely our fault as we adjusted our schedule to settle around the Bank Holidays in a better fashion.

The latest club committee meeting was held on Monday 14th November and resulted in the following :-

We have taken on board the feedback into the proposed competition topics for next year, and have dropped the proposed "no editing / straight out of camera" competition and replaced it with "Warrington" to help fuel our efforts to fill the St Rocco's Calendar. Further details will be made available once the proposals for the year are fleshed out.

As noted in a previous news item, club member Richard Connolly was recently awarded the ARPS distinction by the Royal Photographic Society.

Did you know that you can susbscribe to WDCC News items using a standard RSS news feed reader (either smartphone app or desktop). Most internet browsers also allow subscriptions - for example Firefox will allow you to subscribe using "Live Bookmarks". There are also lots of addons for Chrome or Firefox to add RSS Feed functionality.

Congratulations to club member Richard Connolly on his recent "Associate" distinction awarded by the Royal Photographic Society.

Richard has previously given a talk to the club regarding his LRPS award, which is the first level of distinction. He is also due to give a talk to the club on 5th December 2016 about his journey towards the ARPS.

Having now received all of the wining photographs from last week's Technology competition, I have built the gallery page which can be found in the Competitions / Results menu above, or by clicking here

All previous competition results (since 2014) can also be found on that menu.
