Wrekin Arts Photographic Club Newsletter 18 2018/19 7 May 2019

This Friday we will have a showing of digital images from the 2018 London Salon of Photography http://www.londonsalon.org The Salon Membership is restricted to just 50 members who join by invitation only.  The exhibition is open to any photographer. Irene is one of the members of the Salon and had 2 images accepted whilst Roger had 1 acceptance. There’s usually a good discussion about the images so it’s well worth attending on Friday.

Friday is also the hand in night for the 4th Merit PDI competition. Rules and a link to the online entry system can be found at http://wrekinartspc.com/competition-links-organisations-and-club-guides 

On Friday 17 May, Peter Cheetham Hon PAGB judges the 4th Merit PDI competition.
