Editor - Derek Godridge

Brian Galbraith judged our Prints and Images of the Year last night with some excellent images being shown. He told us it was his last ever judging and so we were really privileged to have such a knowledgeable judge and photographer last night. Brian handed out some useful tips along with his observations and gave us many suggestions and thoughts to ponder as to how we might improve our images. Thank You Brian for a great end to our competitive programme.

Invitations to apply for the Committee posts are welcome so find a proposer and seconder and let Maru know before the meeting if possible. In addition to committee posts, we are always looking for members to“shadow” current Committee Members if you are looking to help or maybe eventually step up !

The club has agreed to record the various events through the week and so members have the opportunity to join in and support the Penryn Jubilee Committee. As we await the final details, I will be sending out a more detailed programme shortly and would like Two PCC photographers to sign up for each event if possible in order to provide some great shots for Penryn Town Council. This is a super opportunity for us to get involved and we will be given priority at each event – however you WILL need to wear your PCC badge to validate your attendance and give everyone peace of mind.

  • This is a VERY prestigious competition and exhibition which showcases the talent we have in the West Country with prints and digital images shown at the Bovey Tracey Golf Club from 1st to 16th May.
