NEW Accrington Camera Club programme 2019-20

In a change to the published schedule, our Friday meeting on 5 July will be the last one before our summer break. It is our President's Evening, with our chairman Oliver Doree providing the entertainment. There will also be a fun AV competition. After the summer break, we return on 6 September - with print judge from our Annual Competition, David Butler MFIAP ARPS PSA4 BPE3*, talking through the merits of the winning images. Hope to see you there...

The images on this page are winning ones from our recently held Annual Competition and are among those staring in our Annual Exhibition. This is open to the public from Saturday, 1 June until Sunday, 21 July and is held in the splendid surroundings of Haworth Art Gallery, Accrington. Location and opening times HERE. Entry and parking are FREE and we would love you to come along and see our work. With more than 100 prints and in excess of 200 digital images, we hope there is something for everyone. There's also a cafe, so why not have a cuppa or a bite to eat while you're there?

Members please note that 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.
