Former and much missed L&CPU committee member Diana Magor sent us this photo which was taken of some of the award winners in the Hoylake International Exhibition who came to their first showing last week. They were presented with their medals and ribbons by L&CPU President Garth Tighe.
We are pleased to announce the success of our Annual Exhibition held again at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. The exhibition was opened by Master Landscape Photographer Paul Gallagher. L&CPU President Garth Tighe attended the opening evening along with guests from Photographic Clubs from throughout the North-West.
The PAGB held its Annual Inter Club PDI Championship at The University of Warwick on Saturday 16th July. Wigan 10 took first place with Chorley PS in 3rd place. Congratulations and well done to them both. It was an excellent day providing the opportunity to see many stunning images for an audience of some 350 people.
Wigan 10 member Rob Millin said, “Great event with so many fantastic images on display and the L&CPU again shining through……….. !! The PAGB sure know how to run this event and it is with no small thanks to our own Exec members who also work so tirelessly for the PAGB.”
