IoPHT Photo Comp
The 31st annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photography Competition and exhibition will take place during 17th-18th October 2015. There was a record entry of 708 prints last year and another good amount of high-quality images are expected again this year. Quite a few of our members enter this each year and have done well. Entries must be in by Mon 12th at the latest or by the 3rd if delivering them to one of the shops acting as collection points. See www.stgeorgesreforne.co.uk/ where you can find the terms and conditions plus the entry form.
Joint Photo/Art Exhibition
Sat 6th June

Our fourth annual joint exhibition with the Royal Manor Workshops Art Group took place on the above date. It was a great display as usual and there were plenty of visitors who praised the work on show and quite a few prospective new members were obtained.
Please see the "2015 Exhibition" page for a report of the event and the gallery page with photos of all the display-stands.
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 4th November at 7:30pm.

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.

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.
