Next Meeting
  This will be on Wed 14th December from 7:30pm and is the club's Christmas party. We start with the usual fish & chip supper which will be followed by a fun "guess the object" exercise where people have to work out what the shown photos of well-known items are from obscure shots of them. We will also have a Secret Santa, some festive music and maybe a drink or two...

Brian Lynch Challenge
The fourth annual Brian Lynch Challenge took place at Portland on Wed 2nd March and was judged by Malcolm Macnaughtan. See the separate "BLC 2016" page for a report. The next one will be held at Weymouth during Feb/Mar 2017.

Open Evening & Design a Logo Comp
  On Wed 7th September we held our first Open Evening
which went very well and the hall was very busy all evening - a big thanks to all involved.
Our "Design a Logo" competition was launched, although the closing date of October 31st has now passed and the selection of the winning design will be made at a future committee meeting.

Joint Photo/Art Exhibition 2016
Our fifth annual joint exhibition with the Royal Manor Workshops Art Group took place on Sat 4th June.
  It featured paintings and prints with some digital images copied by the artists as an interesting link between the two groups. Please see the "2016 Exhibition" page for a report of the event and the gallery pages with photos of all the display-stands.

New Annual Club Awards
From the 2015-16 season we have added two new annual awards to go with our existing "Photographer of the Year". See the "Annual Club Awards" page under the "Info" section.

Club Emails
Please refer to this page when joining the Club to ensure that you receive all necessary communications as there have been a few email issues.
IoPHT Photo Comp 2016
The 32nd annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photographic Competition and exhibition took place over Fri 14th Oct to Sun 16th.
There was a lower number of entries this year with just 358 prints, but the quality of images was very high as usual and were enough to fill both main halls. See the "IoPHT Photo Comp" page for a report and list of winners.
See www.stgeorgesreforne.co.uk/ for some of the winning photos.
Committee
The next Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday 18th January at 7:30pm.

Wessex Battle 2015
This annual inter-club competition was held on Monday 26th October at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester. Nine of the top clubs from across Dorset competed with just 8 images each and Dorchester regained the trophy with a deserved win. We did very well this year coming in 7th place - well clear of the two clubs below and not too far behind the ones above. Our top two images on the night were by Hayley Roberts and Gerry White which both scored the full 10 marks and were awarded Highly Commended. The judge on the night was Sheila Haycox ARPS DPAGB EFIAP who had a tough job with lots of high quality images of varied subjects and styles. See the results and our images on the separate "Wessex Battle" page.

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.
