Welcome to Portland Camera Club.

Next Meeting
Our current season ended with our AGM on May 13th and the new season begins on Wed 2nd Sept at 7:30pm, although we have plenty of things organised for our members in the mean time

End-Of-Season Social
Wed 27th May - 7:30pm

We are meeting at Wyke Workies for a few drinks and a game or two of skittles. Club members and their  partners are welcome.
Joint Photo/Art Exhibition
Sat 6th June - 10am to 4pm

We are aiming to hold our fourth annual joint exhibition with the Royal Manor Workshops Art Group on the above date. There will be lots of paintings and photographic prints on display. A further selection of photographs and paintings will also be shown together where the photos have been reproduced by the artists to provide an interesting link between the groups. There will be refreshments and a raffle and hopefully a good attendance of local people to learn about the Art and Photography groups which may well add to their membership.
Chris Ford, ARPS - "Island Life"
An exhibition of photographs taken around the Isle of Portland. It is being held from Saturday 23rd May until Saturday 13th June in the Mulberry Gallery. This is upstairs in Weymouth Central Library and free to view.

Brian Lynch Challenge
The third annual Brian Lynch Challenge took place at Weymouth Camera Club on Tue 24th Feb and was judged by Penny Piddock. See the separate "BLC 2015" page for a report.

Wessex Battle 2014
annual inter-club competition was held on Monday 27th October at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester. Nine clubs from across Dorset competed with just 8 images each. This years judge was Adrian Herring ARPS, DPAGB who did a consistent and fair job with the excellent and diversely-themed images entered. We managed to do a little better than last year, coming joint eighth with Weymouth. The overall winners were Blandford - congratulations to them for their deserved win and in breaking Dorchester's recent run of victories.

Littlemoor Photo Comp
The second of this new annual event took place on Sunday 29th June 2014. T
here were around 110 entries including some from 5 of our members, 2 of Weymouth's and other non-club entrants. In the 5 adult categories, there were a total of 20 awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd plus one HC for each of Landscape, Wildlife, B&W, Pets & Novice). Portland members managed to take 9 of these awards which was an excellent result. This was a great event which would benefit from more entries in future as the competition becomes more well-known. Jan Hinton hopes to run it again in 2015, but it will probably move to November.
The next Committee meeting will be held on Wed 3rd June at 7:30pm.

Dorset County Show
This popular annual event took place on Sat/Sun 6th-7th September 2014 and had photography sections. Well done to Portland Camera Club's Sara Harpley who gained both a First and a Third place.
IoPHT Photo Comp
The 30th annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photography Competition and exhibition took place during 17th - 19th October 2014. There was a record entry of 708 prints and members of the club did well. See the "IoPHT Photo Comp" page for the full results.
Synergy Grant
We have kindly been awarded the sum of £340 towards a replacement laptop and Photoshop Elements license. This has enabled us to update our original one and also gain an extra machine for us to use during image-editing tuition sessions.
The club wishes to thank Synergy for this opportunity.
