Selsey Camera Club

John Sayers Landscape Cup

Just twelve members attended this week's meeting to enjoy fifty-four fascinating landscape images submitted by ten fellow club members.

A warm welcome was given to our judge for the evening, Dick Saunders from Middleton Camera club, who gave his expert opinion on each of the PDIs entered for this popular annual competition.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Monday 9th December when we will host our annual "Mix and Match" competition against the Witterings Camera Club.

PDI entries from each club will be displayed in turn and an entry from the other club will be selected which most closely matches that image. The judge, John Lynch (who officiated the competition last year), will decide whether the second image was a good match, a partial match or no match at all.

A possible two marks are available in each round, (two for a good match, one for a partial match and two marks to the lead club for a "no match").

This is normally a very closely fought contest which generates a good deal of good humoured banter from both teams. An early arrival is recommended to ensure that you get a seat with a good view.

50th Anniversary message from

I am a great believer in community spirit, that curious quality, a sort of glue, that brings people together and makes a village run

When I arrived in Selsey in 1968 I found all I needed except what? ?

Being a photographer for my working life and mostly enjoying it, I realised that this was it, a photographic club. There wasn't one so I started one! That was how the Selsey Camera Club was born.

It was very satisfying to see the Club settle in and start to grow but after three years my itchy feet got the better of me and it was time to move on. As it was the least expensive place we decided that Australia was the place to be and so we became Ten Pound Poms!

As electronics and e-mail have improved greatly keeping in touch with the Selsey Camera Club is easy and it is so satisfying to see it firmly set in as part of Selsey life.

I'm unable to visit you to help celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary but I have already started saving for the next 50th so start planning.

George Abel. (Australia 2019)
