Walker Print Competition Round 2 – 20 May

Maximum of 4 images per person, maximum mount size is 500mm x 400mm (or 20 inches by 16 inches in old money) There is no limit of the image size, just the overall mount size.

Please bring your mounted prints to the club meeting on Monday 13 May. Please also let me know the order in which you want the images presented as I need to put name stickers on the back and make up the list.

Alternatively you could take advantage of Ian’s printing and mounting service, he tells me that the latest you can get the images to him is also 15 April. If you do this you must also give me the names of your images and the order in which you want them presented so I can sort out the list and get name stickers for your images.

Cheers

Please bring your mounted prints to the club meeting on Monday 15 April at the latest. Please let me know the order in which you want the images presented as I need to put name stickers on the back and make up the list.

If you do this you must also give me the names of your images and the order in which you want them presented so I can sort out the list and get name stickers for your images.

 

Secondly…

1 in 100 Competition – 29 April at Chingford

This is not a club competition. This is personal! There is one winner and they take home the trophy! Each club can put in 25 digital images (4 clubs see?)

Maximum of 2 images per person, taken in the last 2 years by replying to this email by 12 April at the latest.

No matter if your image is landscape, square, portrait or ovoid the maximum number of vertical pixels should never be more than 768 pixels and the maximum number of horizontal pixels should never be more than 1024 pixels. If 25 people put in images then only your first image will be put forward, if more than 25 of you put in images then the first 25 will be taken.

Please make sure that the image file name is like this “XX_YourName_ImageTitle”

  • XX: Your file should be numbered in order of preference 01 or 02.
  • _ Is an underscore “_” not hyphen “–”
  • YourName: Your name as one word.
  • ImageTitle: The title of the image as one word so the file name will look like – “01_MattRussell_MoreBlur.jpg”.

Please do not send any images to my home email as I’m on holiday from 6 – 13 April. Ian is picking up the images and doing the business for this competition.

Walker Projected – Round 3

Walker Projected – Round 3

Last night saw the third and final round of the Projected Walker Trophy competition.

Consensus of opinion was that Maggie Tear was a superb judge, providing a clear and concise summary of each image without the usual “crop this”, “crop that”, “Photoshop that” type comments.

A big congratulations to Carolyne Barber who once again won a competition with her absolutely superb entry “Balancing”.

Congratulations also to Peter Hall, Carolyne Barber (again), & Keith Mautterer who took 2nd, 3rd and 4th places.
