Because of Covid we were unable to have the Print competitions this year. The Committee have decided that for one year only our AE will be PDI based. We are now asking members to enter up to 9 Mono PDI’s and 9 Colour PDI’s. You can either enter images from the internal competitions or from elsewhere. The only stipulation is that once an image has been entered into the AE it
may not be entered again in any format in any subsequent Club Competition, Outings Competition or Annual Exhibition respectively. The Rules say an image which has been entered in a Club Competition may only be entered in the same season’s AE but as we didn’t have an AE last year, if you wish, you can enter a PDI from last year’s competitions. Please get your AE entries in to Brian (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before Saturday 17 April. If you are just using your PDIs from the rounds you will still need to resubmit them to Brian.
Congratulations to Matt Teager, the winner with his panel entitled “At the Jazz Club”.
The runner up was Peter Milton with his “Back Alleys” panel.

At our September 2021 AGM the Committee will have a vacancy for the role of Treasurer and Membership Secretary. These roles are currently combined into a single one but if anyone would be interested in taking on either or both of these roles could you please speak to a Committee member. The current Treasurer would be willing to shadow you for the first year.
At the next AGM I will be retiring from the Executive Committee which means we will also have a vacancy for the General Secretary role. I will, of course, be able to shadow you for the first year. If you would be interested in taking on this role please speak to me.
