18th January: Message from the President: Calendar Competition and Show ‘n’ Tell

For those who missed our Calendar Competition and our ‘Show and Tell’ Michael has put a sample of the images shared on the night on the website. The Calendar images can be seen on the Home page http://www.cardiffcameraclub.co.uk
Some of the  ‘Show and Tell’ images can be seen on the January section of the Club Night page.  http://www.cardiffcameraclub.co.uk/all-you-need-to-know/club-nights/january-2018/
 Apologies to those of you whose images have not been shown but we have to ration available space. 

20th January: Message from the Web Organiser 

 We have now started an ‘Out and About’ page. Its purpose is to inform members of events and photo opportunities which might be of interest. We hope in time to make outings of this nature a fairly regular feature. We have also set up a separate google club calendar to highlight potential photoshoots and outings of interest which members might like to take part in or recommend to each other. These outings will come loosely under an ‘Out and About’ heading which Dave (Brown) is co-ordinating on behalf of the Committee. We hope in time to arrange both a mid week and a weekend activity once a month. You will find the diary on http://www.cardiffcameraclub.co.uk/out-and-about/ 

All we now need to do is populate it with events. All you have to do is complete a very simple form under the calendar to suggest outings, or confirm your interest in one already announced. 
Maybe some of you would like go to the Photography Show which is being held at the NEC on the 17th -20 March. If you would like to go please let Dave (Brown) or Michael know. If enough people are interested we might qualify for discounted tickets. (Incidentally there are concessions for ‘seniors’) 
For more information take a look at the ‘Out and About’ page or speak to Dave, or any committee member. 

22nd January: Message from the President,  Competition Handbook

During recent months the Committee has been busy putting together a draft Competition Handbook which we hope will make it easier for members to enter competitions. The handbook also includes proposed changes to the competition rules including image sizes and a relaxing of print/mounting criteria. Our intention is to trial these rules and procedures for remainder of the season, and to review them before the AGM.

We very much hope that members will support this initiative and agree to the approach we have taken. Although we would have liked to have had wider consultation with members we have taken into account a lot of feedback we have received from members including several newcomers to the competition scene.

The Draft handbook can be found on the website here. Please let us have you feedback. If you have any concerns please speak to Michael who has taken the lead in this initiative, myself, or to any committee member.

26th January: Message from Comp Secretary

Firstly a big thankyou to all those who submitted entries in out first monthly competition of the season. Thanks too to all those who attended on the night and made the effort all the more worthwhile. Sorry for the technological blip. A problem of the computer and the projector using different languages – now sorted!

I have now put up the scores and the league placings on the website. This can be found in the members section. Go to ..
