Classes and important information

There will be Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced classes.     These classes also apply to PDIs but not to the Bert Wicks Award Audio Visual.  Please read the relevant documentation relating to the Exhibition to define classes. You will see from the entry form that this year the Bert Wicks Trophy is a Audio Visual.

Our very own Bob Moore Hon FRPS, MPAGB and Hon PAGB has agreed to judge our Exhibition this year.

We are hoping to receive plenty of entries this year and we hope too that you will encourage your children/grandchildren to enter the Young Photographers Section.  The numbers had dropped last year. Let’s see if we can see an increase this year. It is free for them to enter.

Please remember to keep a copy of your entry form so that you know what prints/images you have entered.  We hope more of the newer members will also put entries into the exhibition in the appropriate sections.  Don’t be afraid to try. It is a way of displaying your work.

Please have the entries to Ian by Friday 13th July to enable him to get all the work done in time for the Exhibition. Prints to be brought to the Exhibition, but titles will be required by the closing date.

The Photographic Group  looks forward to receiving your entries for 2018 and seeing you at the exhibition in August.
