We are just about half-way through our summer break and I begin to wonder what will be in store next season. The ’13-’14 season will be hard to beat, with so many club and personal successes; a number of members gained distinctions and we acquitted ourselves very well in all our regional and national competitions.

Can we do it again?

It seems a tough call, but the answer is surely, yes! It may not be a first place in the L&CPU print competition next year, it may not be winning all our inter-club competitions but we will have a great season. I have seen some exciting work already but the main reason for my confidence is that I know we have all moved on with our photography and our enjoyment comes from what we gain as a result – not just competition success – we are all winners!

There is still time to get tickets for the PDI Championships, which take place next Saturday and it is not too early to order tickets for the Print Championships in October (we are the proud possessors of ticket numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5!). These competitions are THE best single showcases of club photography. Application Forms are available under Resources;  PDI Tickets here, Print Tickets here.

Don’t forget our Events page and our Forum (where you can currently read about a day at the races (well-almost) and members can enter our July topic – People).

You may also be in time to take advantage of the offer on Lightroom books from Craft & Vision at www.cratfandvision.com. The currency rate has not been so good for us for quite a while, so $10 is not too much!
