PDI size increases to 1600x1200 this season

Our rules for Projected Digital Images (PDI), submitted to internal or external competitions, have previously specified that they should be sized to 1400x1050 pixels. However, the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and their associated federations, including North & East Midlands Photographic Federation (N&EMPF) to which we are affiliated, have adopted a new, larger size: 1600x1200 pixels. If we wish to submit images submitted to our internal competitions to any external event, they are going to have to conform to the new specifications.

Bill Dunn Memorial - Creative Competition 2018

It hardly seems a year since the last Bill Dunn Memorial competition. However, the entries rolled in from members of eight local clubs. The judge this year was Sarah Kelman A.R.P.S. of Cambridge who had a very clear idea of what that word creative means. She was looking for that "something special" in the idea behind the image, whether it was projected or a print.

Graham Williams of City CC won the coveted first place with "Green Energy", looking after the hand carved trophy for one year. He also had a Commended award for his print "A World of Images".
