This week we present our winner of the Nature section of our recent print competition. It is Grebe with Chick by Kath Hill. One of the pleasing things about helping to run a club is to see members’ work getting better and better. Kath has already presented us with some excellent entries; her In The Thick Of It was one of my favourite photos of the year and it was used in our inter-club competitions. Kath and husband Ray both gained their CPAGB awards last autumn and I hope they are thinking about the next step of DPAGB.

 NEWEVENTS revised

 • “Be Careful What You Wish For” is a personal account of art photography since 1970 by Ian McNab.
This well informed piece of writing neatly places some of the major names in photography  who were instrumental in it becoming “swallowed by art”. Ian writes with authority and clarity and we expect the article to be of wide interest.
