North Cheshire PS Challenges – 2017

 

We are really looking forward to hosting our two major inter-club competitions again as part of Exhibition week at the refurbished Civic Hall, our regular venue in Poynton.

The Print Competition will take place on Wednesday 22nd March and the DPI Knock-out event on Thursday 23rd March and we hope to see the main hall filled with 200 plus keen club members and friends. We guarantee you will be royally entertained, on both evenings, by our esteemed judges Gwen and Phil Charnock, who need no introduction but who will be warmly introduced anyway by our president, Noel Patterson. Entry forms for both competitions will be dispatched to all existing contacts in February but these events are open to ALL photo clubs and societies so please spread the word to anyone who might be keen to “have a go” this year. There are two prestigious trophies up for grabs, the Alan Adshead Memorial Trophy for prints, and the North Cheshire Challenge Trophy for DPIs.

L&CPU Adopt New Standard Resolution

You are probably aware that the PAGB have taken a decision to adopt a new standard resolution of 1600pixel by 1200 pixel for images entered into competition from July 2017.

At a recent L&CPU, executive committee meeting it was decided that we should also adopt and phase in this new resolution beginning with the next Annual Club Competition in March 2017.

We will continue to accept the 1400 x1050 format in L&CPU Competitions, along with smaller image sizes.  However, we strongly suggest that you do not submit image sizes smaller than 1400 x 1050, as they will be significantly smaller when projected onto the screen.

This proposed move however does not mean your club need to upgrade your projector, as the increase in pixel size is only a requirement of entry into L&CPU & PAGB competitions.

Further reading on this subject can be seen in the PAGB e-news issues 161 extra April2016 and 169 August 2016.

Subs Reminder!

Can the following clubs note that that their L&CPU subscriptions are due by Saturday 31st December 2016:-  Ashton u Lyne Photographic and Imaging Society Barrow Digital Photographic Club Beacon Photographic Club Bolton Digital Photographic Society Crewe Photographic Society Crosby Camera…

Having so many clubs in the mix, we could only use the first four images from each club; this gave 180 images in total put before the judge.
