Website Update

I have now updated the Events page on the website to match Trevor’s revised programme. There are some cracking events coming up including the Christmas social and some outstanding photographers visiting the Club. Next week we have Tim Knifton visiting the Club, and having seen, it previously I promise you it will be something very different – especially if you like urban decay. 
 
If you see any error on the events page can you please let me know. I have yet to add some of next season’s battles as the WPF website is down. If any of have these dates please pass them on.

Competition Invitations 

The Welsh Assembly has initiated a pothole photo competition as part of its inquiry into the state of roads in Wales – shouldn’t have to go too far to find an image then! 
 
Dean has already circulated the official details but in case you haven’t seen them I repeat them below.
 

An Assembly committee is asking you to capture on camera your depiction of the ‘state of the roads in Wales’ for its inquiry

The Inquiry – What is it about?
A new inquiry by the Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee will look at the state of roads in Wales and what is being done to ensure they are fit for the future.

Here is a short film about the competition.

The prizes
The best photographs will be part of a public exhibition and will be on display at the National Assembly for Wales in Cardiff. The winner’s image will also feature on the cover of the report. The winner and runners up will receive a print of their image and the winner will be invited to the report launch. 

Timescale

  • Deadline for entries is 12 noon on Friday 13 July 2018 
  • Winners will be announced on Monday 23 July 2018

How to enter
Entries should be sent by email to: seneddoutreach@assembly.wales
Please include with your image:

  • Your full name
  • Phone number
  • The date your image was taken
  • The location of your image

Please do not submit an image before reading our terms and conditions and privacy notice

Further details can be found on the Committee Inquiry webpage where there is also a Welsh Language invite


 We have also received an invitation form E-Coffins to participate in their calendar competition. 

From: Maren Stacey <maren@ecoffins.co.uk>
Subject: Photo competition “British landmarks”Dear Madam/Sir, 
I wonder whether any of your members might be interested in our annual photo competition. We would really appreciate some welsh entrants, sharing some of your spectacular sights with our clients. The top prize is £200,- cash and  £25,- Amazon vouchers for the next 11 runner-ups. 
Although this competition is published on our website www.ecoffins.co.uk under “competitions” and on other websites such as “The prizefinder” and “Moneysavingexperts”, we would love to receive some better quality images, which your members surely could provide. 
I could send you a flyer, which you may be able to forward to your members? 
If you do not wish to receive another email from  me next year, could you please let me know? We appreciate your time and privacy, and would not wish to bother you with unwanted emails. Yours sincerely, Maren Stacey
I subsequently checked out some issues to do with image rights and received the following. 
Yes, the photographer retains his/her copy rights, and we do not pass on any data or photos to third parties, as explained under “Entrant data”, which is printed underneath the T’s & C’s on the competition tab on our website (http://www.ecoffins.co.uk/ecoffins-photography-competition-2018.aspx). Thank you for questioning this, I shall try to make it more clear in next years’ competition. 

We are using the images to create a calendar, which we send to over 5000 clients. These are displayed in funeral homes, where they are also seen by members of the public and staff. The calendars are in high demand, we actually always have funeral directors contacting us wanting some more. 
We also publish some images on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/EcoffinsUK/posts/) and twitter, which we use to promote the competition and to announce the winner. 

Due to the format of the images on the calendar, it has sometimes been necessary to crop pictures slightly, and when printing we sometimes needed to adjust the images and brighten some up. We obviously take great care, as we want to see the images displayed in the best possible way once printed. I hope this will not deter your members from sending in their images? We have never had any complaints from previous winners. These are the only alterations we make.

Thank you again for answering my email. I hope this has re-assured you? Please do not hesitate to contact me agagin, should you have any more queries. 

Kind regards, 
Maren Stacey
