Abel and Peter Clark Trophies - Panel Competitions

Thirteen members gathered together on the 13th January for our annual panel competition. For the nine members who entered their work, (nineteen PDI panels and thirteen sets of prints), the object was to submit panels of three pictures that together either portray a story or have an obvious connection. By the end of the evening there were to be two overall winners, with the traditional Abel Trophy going to the print winner and the Peter Clark Trophy to the winner of the digital section.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

At our next meeting at 7.30pm on Monday 27th January we will hold the Turner Peninsula Trophy competition which will be judged by Tim West FRPS.

This is a PDI competition with the usual maximum of 5 entries. Please indicate which entry should be excluded should there be too many entries received and a “cull” prove to be necessary.

Entries must be clearly recognised to have been taken from or within the Manhood Peninsula (i.e. East to West: between Pagham Harbour and East Head & North to South: between the A27 and Selsey Bill).

Please remember that the maximum size for projecting a landscape image using the club’s equipment is currently 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high and that the maximum height of a portrait image is therefore also 1080 pixels. Please check the SCC website (‘Competition Galleries’ tab) for the online ‘Resizing Guide’.

The deadline for accepting entries is noon on Sunday 26th January.

Please send your PDI entries to Dick Read attached to an email to

50th Anniversary message from

George Abel Founder of Selsey Camera Club

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)
