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.

Please note that there have been a couple of changes to the event programme (primarily driven by availability of guest speakers ).  The programme until Christmas now looks as follows.

Congratulations to club members David Mellor and Andy Gilbert, each having recent success in external competitions.

Andy Gilbert recently celebrated double success with 2 of his entries into the "Stockton Heath Festival – Photographic Competition" earlier in July. The subject was “Nightlife” and Andy took first prize (£30) for the "Judges Choice" with his image “Rockin’ at the Parr Hall” and another £30 first  prize – for the "Peoples Choice" (voted by the public), “Liverpool-Albert Dock”. Andy said he was delighted and surprised, especially with two wins and it also being the first time he has entered this annual competition.

Following the committee meeting last night, please note that there has been a minor amendment to the club programme, namely 24th October and 7th November events have been switched. This is due to the similarity between the events on 10th October (low light workshop) and the original scheduled event for the 24th (outdoor low light - light painting). The 24th October will now be a lecture (subject TBC)

The Club held its first competition of the Club year last night, with a much improved entry in the print category. Over all 29 prints were judged last night, along with 39 digital images - marked change from the normal balance of images. It was great to see so many newcomers to the print competition (myself included as these were my first print entries).

The competition was judged by Janice Barton CPAGB BPE2 from Warrington Photographic Society. Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition. The winners and placings were as follows:-

I have added a new sidebar feature to show the next 4 or 5 events in the club programme. Click on the links for further details of the event, and a calendar view with many options. The styling will change to bring it into line with the rest of the site as I work on the content.
