AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS IN YOUR CLUB
We’re a varied lot, us photographers – portrait, landscape, creative…. but we have one thing in common – we’re all after that award-winning image. Then of course there’s the couple in the corner who seem to have a slightly different agenda – you know, the ‘Audio Visual’ workers! Most clubs have one or two AV’ers, often working in semi-isolation.
This is why in 1993 the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group was formed where like-minded photographers, with an interest in AV could meet to exchange ideas and expertise. Now 25 years later the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group is still welcoming new members.

by Bob Robinson • • Comments Off on 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.
