From the Chair...
This week we held our end of season party awards night, the annual opportunity to celebrate the creative work produced by our talented members throughout the season.
A very different end of season awards night held online through Zoom. Normally the successful authors would be physically presented with trophies and certificates for achievements in the various categories. This year the awards were announced alongside an excellent slide show of each successful members Images, including a panel of representative Images for league success.
This season we had three leagues to highlight, with promotions from both newcomers and Intermediate leagues into the advanced league. All leagues were competitively fought throughout the season with a very close points tally at the top of each league separating the ultimate winners.
Authors were Invited to comment on their most successful prints or PDI Images, during the evening, sharing details of their outstanding work as their Images were displayed.
The actual presentation of Trophies and certificates will be held once we return to our hall at the community centre, hopefully in September.
The night also featured the members choice award chosen from highest scoring PDI’s produced during this season. In addition there was another challenge set for the members, to have the best Zoom background on the night to represent a ‘party’ this featured some great and Inventive visual offerings.
A full evening which also featured a review of the season covering life at the club before and after the current lockdown and a visual walkthrough of next season’s programme.
We were also pleased to confirm our exciting summer programme starting next week and every Thursday until the start of our new season on September 3rd. We will be meeting online with a ‘light’ more Informal programme of photography challenges and sharing discussions.
As always, further details of the awards and Images shown in the gallery are available on our website.
