Exhibition Coordinator’s Message

Welcome to the 75th National Exhibition of Photography organised by Southport Photographic Society.   We feel privileged to continue the fine work of our predecessors who started this acclaimed exhibition in 1947 – Three quarters of a century ago.  Throughout this time, our Exhibition has always been either Prints and Slides, or Prints and PDI’s; with the exception of last year, when due to Covid 19, we were unable to accept prints.  With the uncertainties that Covid has caused we feel unable to commit to having prints for our 75th, which we regret.  However, plans are in hand for us to be able to hold and display a Print & PDI Exhibition in 2023.

We look forward with great pleasure to receiving your images in the four classes that we will select for this year, and we wish you every success with your entries.

Mr. Trevor Davenport. ARPS. DPAGB. ABPE
