HAND-IN FOR ANNUAL EXHIBITION
This year, we will be holding a celebration evening at the club on 12 May and a virtual exhibition. Winners/runners up of the competitions during the season will be presented with cups or certificates, but all images are judged again (this year by Pat Couder) and there is the chance to win awards for individual images, e.g. for best landscape.
All members may enter 9 PDIs, 9 mono prints and 9 colour prints into the Annual Exhibition. These can be the images that were submitted into competitions during the season but you may also present new images.
Julie has all of the prints that were entered into the three rounds of the Mono Print Competition and the three rounds of the Colour Print Competition. These will automatically be entered into the Annual Exhibition as members’ print entries, unless you tell Julie otherwise (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All members who wish to enter PDIs into the Annual Exhibition should email their entries to Brian (email@example.com). No images will automatically be entered so please send your PDIs (max. 9), even if they were already submitted in the three rounds of the PDI Competition.
All entries must be received by 14 April.
The committee has put together a survey to gather the opinions of members and help us to organise future seasons’ activities.
Please click here to complete the survey. All responses are anonymous.
The survey will close on 17 April.
