Annual Exhibition

Entries are invited from members for the 2013 Exhibition

22nd 23rd and 24th July 2013

 10.00am  –  5.30pm each day

at The Loades Hall, Shire Hall Plain, Holt

1        Members may enter up to three prints, on mounts up to a maximum of 40cm x 50cm, labelled on the reverse with their name and the title of the print.  Please also number your prints in order of your preference; we hope to be able to display all entries but in the event of the committee receiving too many print entries then your third choice will be eliminated.  Last year we exhibited 84 prints.

Anne requires the titles of prints you plan to enter by Wednesday 8thJuly, these can be emailed to her or given to her at a meeting.

The prints themselves must be either brought to the club meetings on Wednesday 26th June or Wednesday 10th July 2013 or delivered to Anne’s home address by Friday 12th July latest.

Titles received after 8thJuly and prints received after 11th July will not be considered for entry into the exhibition.  There can be no exceptions to these dates

2        Members may enter up to three Digital Images. Images must be saved as JPEG files, a maximum of 1024 pixels wide x 768 pixels high and in the colour space sRGB.

David requires your digital images, either by email or on a disc or memory stick by Wednesday 11th July.

Entries received after 11thJuly will not be considered for inclusion in the exhibition.  There will be no exceptions to this date.

We will require help from members to man the exhibition and a rota will be available at the next meeting for those able to help, in order that they can choose a date and time on which they are able to offer their services.

This year the Exhibition date coincides with the week when I have guests staying with me so although I am happy to be responsible for helping the committee to organise and set up the event on the Monday morning I will not be available to attend every day as I normally do so please make an effort to volunteer your help stewarding the event.

Sale of Prints

We are sometimes asked if prints are for sale and when this happens, the steward on duty will have available to him or her, a list of members’ contact details in order that the potential customer can deal direct with the photographer.  The club recommends that a minimum price of £25 be asked for mounted work, with a £5 donation of the proceeds coming to the club.

Raffle

As usual, we will be raffling the framed print which was voted ‘Best in Show’ by the visiting public at last year’s exhibition.  Raffle tickets will be on sale for £1 per strip of five.  People from outside the area can be assured that we will post the picture anywhere within the UK.

Visitors will be encouraged to make their choice of winning print to be raffled next year.

After the exhibition closes on Wednesday afternoon, the committee and volunteers will arrange the room as for a normal meeting and it will be open at 7.00pm for members to come along and listen to the judge pass comment on some of the entries.  The judge for this year’s Exhibition will be Bob Norris, President elect of the EAF who will also award certificates to the winners of the year’s Club Competitions and Photographer of the Year.

Tea and coffee will be available and at the end of the meeting members will be asked to take home their entries and, hopefully to offer help in clearing the hall.

Catalogues will be available to pass out to visitors and there will be a supply of copies of next year’s club programme to be handed to interested parties.

I hope I have covered most points regarding the exhibition but if anyone has any queries then please contact any committee member for further information.
