People’s Vote – Summer Exhibition 2017

People’s Vote – Summer Exhibition 2017

The Summer Exhibition at the Winns Gallery in Lloyd Park is now over. Andy, John and Ian now don’t know what to do with their days!

It was our 5th exhibition there and our most popular attracting 1,200 visitors which is great.

Feedback both verbally and in the message book was universally positive and it’s clear that many people now seek us out each year as opposed to stumbling across us!

Visitors to the gallery are asked to vote for their favourite photo, which isn’t simple with 80 prints to vote for.

Here are the results, and congratulations to Jackie, a very worthy winner and one of the favourites of the author.

A selection of images will be added to this post once they have been collected so please check back.

Summer Exhibition – Winns Gallery in Lloyd Park 2017

The Society return to the Winns Gallery for their 5th Summer Photography Exhibition.

It runs from Monday 21st August to Sunday 3th September 2017 from 11am to 5pm each day.

The exhibition showcases the work of over 20 photographers from the Society and over 70 prints.

The diverse body of work reflects the different styles and interests of the photographers and there will be something for everybody to appreciate.

We look forward to meeting you there.

On Monday the 21st August there will be an open evening at 7pm where there will be the opportunity to meet members and have a glass of wine or two! We shall then retire to the Bell for further drinks and discussion.

The above chart is intended to be a summary of the competitions and exhibitions we will be taking part in, in the coming year. For internal competitions the ‘Last entry by’ is the latest date that your entries must be with the competition secretary (John Cross).

  • For projected images this date is the Sunday before the Monday of the competition. (
  • For Printed images this is the Monday preceding the date of the competition.
  • If you need your images printed and mounted then this needs to be done in plenty of time to meet the ‘Last entry by’ date. Ian ([email protected]) Ian Waterman can print and mount these for you but can’t do them all at the last minute! Late submissions may not be admitted!
  • For external competitions (marked with a ‘*’) the date is earlier as a selection committee will need to meet beforehand to decide which images will be entered
  • Images for internal, projected competitions should be no larger than 1920 pixels on the long side and named as follows: NN_Jane Doe_ A print title.jpg, Where NN is a number (01, 02, 03 ETC.) and ‘_’ is an underscore.
Digital Image Submission

Digital Image Submission

We have a set format for all digital image competitions which must be followed.

It’s relatively simple but we still get errors, typically;

  • not re-named at all
  • not using spaces or capitals
  • not following the naming convention

It is important that the naming convention is followed as the software we use ‘looks’ at the underscores and from them determines the author and image title.

Digital Image Specifications 

  • The resolution of our projector is 1920 pixels (horizontal) by 1080 pixels (vertical). Anything submitted in excess of these dimensions will be downsized. An image too small will display small on the screen
  • File Format: jpg

Digital Image Filename:

The filename must be of the format    “XX_Your Name_Image Title

  • XX is the number of your image in order of preference, eg 01, 02, 03, 04
  • Your Name is of course your name, eg. Matt Russell (spaces are allowed between names)
  • Image Title is the name of the image, eg. From the Top Deck of the Bus (spaces are allowed between words)
  • Please use an underscore in between the number, your name, and the title.  An underscore is “_
  • An example would be   03_Matt Russell_From the Top Deck of the Bus

Digital Image submission: 

  • Images should be submitted online at
  • All images must be named correctly or they may not be shown
  • A small number of images may be accepted on USB drive on the evening. If there is not sufficient time to load these to the PC then they will not be shown in the competition.

For external camera club competitions different dimensions may apply.
