General Data Protection Regulations

This legislation comes into effect May 2018. The potential fines for non-compliance are very significant. There will undoubtedly be changes to how we issue Photocamper and communicate by email. More information when available.

Festival and Exhibition Meets

Start thinking now about images that you can share and submit at these events. Watch the website and Photocamper for updates. For 2018 the Exhibition judging will include a new Young Person Class (under 18 years). This will be for images taken during PG Meets – using smart phone or any camera – look out for more details and decide now which Meets to attend with your children/grand children.

Recruitment – can you please help?

Volunteers needed to run the Festival and Exhibition during 2019. Contact chairperson@photogroup.co.uk

Stewards always needed for Meets

Contact meets@photogroup.co.uk

At present the Photographic Section sees a smallish proportion of its 600 plus households/1000 plus individual members at Meets.

There is a consistent and reliable core of volunteer Stewards for Meets but any unplanned absence/illness places stress on these valued volunteers.

The age profile of most current volunteers is in the “retired” category (not untypical of C&CC membership) but with current levels of resourcing the sustainability of the Section is very evidently at risk.

New volunteers are urgently needed to both undertake small short term tasks, Steward at Meets and to shadow existing Council roles ready to take over when a need arises.

If you are willing to help or have any suggestions in this respect please email now: chairperson@photogroup.co.uk.
