Season’s End

Subject: Cupar Camera Club – meetings update

On Thursday 24 March we will have a presentation by Malcolm Hupman on British Wildlife Photography.  Apart from showing some of his exceptional images, he will be advising on camera setups, etc.

The following week (31 March) we will be having a member discussion evening in advance of the AGM when decisions are ratified.  Topics to be included will be meeting format(s) for the 2022/23 season, competitions (number of competitions, reintroduction of prints, some Rules changes, etc), creation of new posts/responsibilities, Internet/Wi-Fi access update.  Please let me know if you have a topic for consideration.  If you will not be attending this meeting but have particular views on any topic, please let me know by email in advance.

On a personal note, I am somewhat bemused today to discover that my image Spheres that really bombed at  the Inter Fife competition on Sunday, was awarded Third place in a highly competitive Division 1 & 2 competition at Dundee Photographic Society last night.  I am beginning to think that Werner’s view of judges might well be correct!!!

Best wishes

Alan

The deadline for submissions to the March 2022 competition is March 20th, and the voting period starts on March 21 and ends on March 31 (these dates are defined by the competition rules).

However, there will be no April competition. Instead that month will be used to select the overall winner of the season, which will be elected between all winning pictures including the ones that shared first prize of the 2021/22 season.

To vote for the winning picture in 2021/22 we will provide a special voting site between April 1 and April 10.

The winner will be announced at the AGM on April 14th and receive The Grant McLeish Memorial Cup.

Picture of the month – August 2021

This was the first month with the new competition and – due to the limited time and being done before the 2021/22 season’s start – it was intended as a trial run. Despite that we have a winner:

Frank Andrew with his picture ‘Waterlogged’.

Congratulations!
