Club Night News: 30th November

Results night: Digital Trophy & George Samuel Trophy


Digital Trophy – Henrietta Byrne LRPS DPAGB

George Samuel – Jane Black ARPS FPSA Hon PAGB

The snowy weather meant we had a less packed house than usual and judge Jane Black was unable to make it from Whitley Bay. However, the intrepid band that made it enjoyed an excellent night of sparkling, mainly new to the club, photography which was greatly enhanced by Henrietta’s insightful, empathetic, elegant commentary. It was interesting that many members chose to submit triptychs or images linked by theme in the Digital trophy though there is no requirement to do so in the rules

Results to follow soon

From Mike Boult: I need the trophies to be returned to the club by Thursday 7th December latest to give me time to get them engraved with the names of our 2017 winners. Approximately one third are in so far

DPS Exhibition, Durham Town Hall

From Mike Boult: we have been asked to extend our Town Hall Exhibition till the end of January 2018. I need some more prints (if possible any from this year’s Lumiere would be great) but also any of your favourite prints you would like to display. I need them by 14th December latest.

Some from the forthcoming Valente might fit the bill but quite a few of those will be needed for the 2018 NCPF Championship in January
