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.


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.
