Rules and PDI preparation changes
In addition to the rule changes that have been introduced for next season please be aware that in preparing PDI images for our competitions in future the image size should be
1600 pixels x 1200 pixels.
The reason for this is that there are some external competitions which we enter where the club/organisation are using the latest projectors which use this increased size of image and we don’t want to be disadvantaged when competing.
The new rules with highlighted changes have been placed on several other pages throughout this site but are also downloadable here.
EAF Advisory Day
The EAF is hosting an APM Workshop at Messing Village Hall, Kelvedon Road, Messing, Essex CO5 9TN on Sunday July 15th from 10am - 5pm. Colin Westgate, Roy Essery and possibly Tony Bramley will be in attendance with Vic to review printed images or PDI's.
During the first session we will explain the various PAGB Photographic Awards and the standard of work necessary to achieve the CPAGB, DPAGB and MPAGB awards.
Afterwards delegates will get the opportunity to have an initial panel of work assessed to give an overview of their current standard, plus guidance about which level they might aim for and what they will need to do to achieve this.
The cost of the event, including light refreshments, will be £12 for those requiring assessments and £5.00 for observers. You may download an application form here.
A poster wih more information is available here.
We are pleased to be able to congratulate three additional members on recent awards.
Cheryl Wilkes brilliant panel that gained her a much deserved PAGB D award was shown to members at the club meeting held 1st May at which Vic also presented her with her award.
Roy Essery’s run of success with submissions to the Southampton International Exhibition this year resulted in in three acceptances in the mono print section. Just Chilling for which he was also awarded an SCC Medal, Foggy Stand of Trees, and Aladdin for which he also picked up an SCC Certificate. The mono print awards can be seen here.
Roy also entered the 107th London Salon this year for the first time and was awarded one of the nine medals that were given. The images for the medal winners can be seen here.
And one further award, an LRPS has been confirmed for Hector Heathcote.
Well done Hector.
At the official opening of the EAF Exhibition on 5th May at Wingfield Barns two members received exhibition awards and Ben Heather was the belated recipient of his CPAGB that he gained last year.
Exhibition selector Peter Young selected Kate Jackson’s "Mathura Monk" for his Monochrome Print Award and Colin Westgate received a Highly Commended for his "Icelandic Church".
Overall 325 members of 44 clubs entered work for selection; of those, 187 members from 42 clubs had their work accepted.
From our club:
11 members submitted Mono prints 5 had acceptances
14 members submitted Colour prints 4 had acceptances
18 members submitted PDI's 11 had acceptances
It should be born in mind however that some members submitted images in all 3 sections.
It's always worth attending any of these events as you will see the cream of work from around the Federation.
