It's a Knockout - 12th December

In the final meeting of 2016, we gathered together this week for our traditional pre-Christmas "It's a Knockout" event.

This is a competition in which members' prints are judged - two at a time - by a show of hands from everybody in the audience. The winner of each pair passes through to the next round and the loser (as the competition name implies) suffers a " Knockout ". Following successive rounds, the last print standing by the end of the evening is traditionally declared the winner, gaining a bottle of wine for the member concerned.

Twelve members brought in up to six prints each at the start of the evening, and these were sorted by Dick Read to ensure that two pictures by the same member weren't displayed together when placed in the lightbox by Margaret Cooper.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer Jeff Owen

Our next meeting will take place on Monday 23rd January when we will be holding our annual competitions for the Abel and Peter Clark Trophies.

This is a competition for a panel of three prints, or a three-part PDI, each set having a distinct link, theme or story with a trophy being awarded to the winner of each entry format.
You may submit up to five entries, either five sets of prints or five PDIs, or a combination of the two formats . The judge Tim West will mark each picture individually out of five, plus a mark out of five for the link value, giving a possible total of twenty.

Print mounts must be marked: LEFT CENTRE RIGHT to indicate their position when displayed. Each set of three prints or each three-part DPI must be given one overall title.
Print entries should be delivered to Tony Storey's house by the close of play Saturday 21st January (please call him on 604689 to arrange a convenient delivery time).

PDI entries should be sent via email by noon on Sunday 22nd January to Dick Read at dick@dickread.plus.com (Please ensure that your digital entries do not exceed 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels).
