Programme

We will continue to hold competitions online until further notice.

Sat       08/08/2020      Hand-in for Annual Exhibition PDI’s

Fri       14/08/2020      Annual Exhibition (the Quartet theme – Shadows/Silhouettes)

Sat       15/08/2020      Ditto

Our annual exhibition will run alongside shows from Lutterworth’s Art Group and the Stitchers to promote creative talent within the town.  This requires a big effort from us all, to make the pictures, to put up and take down the displays and also to be on hand to talk to members of the public during the exhibition.  A big effort, but well worth it.

 

09/09/2020      “From the Other Side of the Fence” with Vin Scothern DPAGB

The title refers to the first half of Vincent’s talk tonight, where he refers to the difficulties (and hopefully how to overcome them,) experienced by sports photographers who don’t have track-side access.  The second half of the evening will be an eclectic mix of non-sports pictures and the whole, promises to be a super start to our autumn season – don’t miss it.

 

16/09/2020      MCPF travelling portfolio (Prints/PDIs & commentary)

The MCPF portfolio competition was held way back in June.  It was open to all clubs in our federation.  Tonight it is our turn to see a representative selection of both prints and PDI’s, from that competition.

24/02/2021      Cheney & Single Print Competitions

This is the premier print competition night in our calendar.  There are four trophies to be won tonight and although it’s not exactly a lottery, it is true that “you’ve got to be in it to win it” so, good luck.  To enter the Cheney Trophy competition you’ll need a set of 6 prints (any two of which must be monochrome). The entries must illustrate 3 topics of your choice, (two prints to each topic).  In addition, there are three single print competitions, one each for Colour, Mono and a recently taken Mono Landscape.
