What's New

Our Annual Exhibition is now open, with almost 120 prints on show and a display of digital images created by our members - many of which won awards at our recent Annual Competition. Some of the winners are featured on this page. Click on an image to see more details and the rest of the photos. The exhibition runs until Sunday, 30th July in the splendid surroundings of Haworth Art Gallery, Accrington, with free entry, free parking and a cafe. Directions and opening times etc HERE. Please come along and support us!

The first in our series of summer outings organised by Barry Noon will be to Withnell on Friday, 21st July. Full details are in the email sent to members.

Our president Ian Kitchin has been awarded the title Associate of the Disabled Photographers Society (ADPS) after submitting a body of work and having it assessed in a similar way to that of the Royal Photographic Society awards. Ian, who is partially sighted, put forward a panel of 15 large prints on the subject 'Within one mile of home' which included landscapes, buildings, trains and people.

Members please note that from March's monthly competition onwards, DPI entries to all club competitions need to be 1600x1200 instead of 1400x1050. This is to reflect changes made nationally and by the L&CPU. In all other respects they can be processed and submitted as normal.

Club members should enter images into competitions using the PhotoEntry software. Log-in HERE or in the Members' Area, which also has a user guide.

Don't forget that as an Accrington Camera Club member it is possible to receive some photographic mentoring from a more knowledgeable or experienced member of the club. So whether you want to know more about your camera settings, how best to convert images to mono, or any other query - get in touch with our president Ian and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

Don't forget that members have access to equipment owned by the club. Laptop and projector - see Mary Braithwaite. Calibration Spyder - see Martin Yates. Slide scanner - see Harry Emmett.
