This Friday, Bob Underhill FIPF, APAGB from Smethwick Photographic Society will judge the finals night colour print competition. This is the last formal club meeting but we will continue to meet every Friday during the Summer. Keep your eye on the website where you will find information about events during the holiday.
The Club’s Annual Dinner and Awards Night will be held at The Ramada Hotel, Telford Centre on Saturday 25 July at 7pm for 7.30pm. All members and their partners are invited and the tickets are £20.50 each. You asked for Social Events on the club questionnaire – let’s see everyone there! This is an excellent opportunity to get to know club members if you don’t have chance to make contact on a Friday night. The menu and booking instructions are attached to the Newsletter.
At the AGM it was agreed that additional website galleries would be added to the site.
There are now three additional galleries on the Club website for Members to upload images to.
1. WREKIN MEMBER'S (various) GALLERY
This is a gallery for anyone who doesn't want to create their own gallery (Members Gallery) on the site, only has one or two images, or wants to display their images anonymously. It is found under the MEMBERS GALLERIES menu tab. You can have your image titled and authored if you wish or just titled.
Please use the guide to arrange for your images to be uploaded. When sending to Calvin, please state title and if you want your name as the author.
2. INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS GALLERY
This gallery is to enable people who have success at various International competitions, to show a selection of those images.
It is accessed via the COMPETITION RESULTS menu tab/INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION SUCCESS listing.
The gallery is a single one for all the images uploaded regardless of competition. If when you send in images you tell Calvin which competition it is from and what level of success was achieved, Calvin will Title the image accordingly. Also on the listing page, that particular competition will be highlighted (as a link to the Gallery), to indicate there are images from that competition in the gallery.
Please use the guide to arrange for your images to be uploaded.
3. NATIONAL SUCCESS GALLERY
This is similar to the International Gallery but for National competitions. Everything for the International gallery above applies to this also except it is accessed from the NATIONAL COMPETITION SUCCESS listing.
Please remember that members images are shown on the Welcome screen, Club competition galleries, Members galleries and linked Members websites. There are bound to be some duplications, but please keep them to a minimum.
Finally, the responses to the club questionnaire are attached to this Newsletter. The committee are considering all the responses that were made and you will see changes being made during the year. These changes will not affect the excellent Friday night programme that Tony has put together now for many years. Wrekin Arts Photographic Club is known throughout the West Midlands for the wide range of speakers who come to the club and our membership doesn’t want to see this changed.
