EAF Exhibition Portfolio 2015

 

The 2015 Exhibition selection has taken place and the Portfolio CD has now been created.


As in previous years, the disc will contain all the images accepted for the EAF Exhibition, as a menu-driven presentation. In addition to this the images selected to represent the EAF in PAGB Inter-Federation events will be in a separate show accompanied by a commentary from Colin Southgate FRPS DPAGB.
 
The Portfolio will be sent on a disc to keep, thus the Portfolio can be shown on any convenient date and more than once if desired. It is anticipated that the discs will be ready by the end of August. As soon as they are ready, they will be dispatched to everyone who has placed an order and paid the £7.50 fee.

To simplify the packaging all documentation will be put in electronic form on the disc.
The disc will be for PC only in one resolution of 1400 x 1050 pixels. This will work well with the lower resolution projectors.
 
To order your copy of the disc please complete the form,which is available on the Downloadable Documents Page and return it to me with your payment as soon as possible.

Portfolio Secretary

Our Federation had five applicants submitting work although, sadly, only one  was sucessful, Dave Wilcox DPAGBa-v, from the Essex A-V Group. So our congratulations go to him. My commiserations go to the other four, but I do hope that they will have another attempt after listening to the comments.

2015 Club Print Championship

The Results


alt
Best Print: 'Pier Eleven' by Ian Gostelow of Biggleswade & District Camera Club
 
On Sunday 8th March 24 clubs took part in the Club Print Championship to find the top EAF club and to select two clubs to represent the EAF at the national Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) Federation Club Championship in October this year.  
 
Yet again it was a warm sunny day which meant lunches could be eaten outside as well as club members getting together to chat to friends they’ve made from other clubs, which was great to see.
 
We saw 15 images from each of the 24 club in the first part of the Championship / Round One. It was good to see a new club, PICO, taking part just weeks after they joined the EAF. The top ten scoring clubs progressed to Round Two, the cut off score being 164.  Norfolk Photography Group just missed out with their score of 162. Well done to the clubs which did get through to Round Two, they were: Beyond Group; Bottisham & Burwell PC; Cambridge CC; Chelmsford CC; Colchester PS; Harlow PS; Ipswich +DPS; St Neots +DCC; Thurrock CC and Ware +DPS.  It was great to see St Neots in the top ten, I believe for the first time - certainly since 2007 when I took on the job of Championship Secretary. 
 
The final Print Club Championship results were:
Winning club gaining the Ken Ratley Trophy – Beyond Group
Runner up club gaining the Eric Saul Memorial Trophy – Ipswich +DPS
Third placed club certificate – Thurrock CC.

This is, I believe, the first time Thurrock CC will represent the EAF, so many congratulations to them.
Ipswich +DPS and Thurrock CC will represent the EAF at the PAGB Federation Club Championship at Ellesmere Port in October this year along with Beyond Group who gained automatic entry by coming 2nd in the 2014 ‘Final’ round of the PAGB Federation Print Club Championship.
  
My thanks go to everyone who helped with the running of the day and who made everything possible – the clubs, the Executive Committee and spouses.  Special thanks go to the tethered link specialist, Ian Wilson, who is not on committee but comes to help the EAF on this day.  Finally, thanks to the judges, Peter Cheetham, Clive Tanner and Peter Young who did a great job. Their personal awards were as follows:
 
The Best Print of the day – ‘Pier Eleven’ by Ian Gostelow of Biggleswade & District Camera Club
 
Peter Cheetham award – ‘Out in Front by Roger Hance of Ipswich & District Photographic Society
Roger has had a particularly good year in EAF Championships as he also got a judges’ award and Best image at the PDI Championship last month.
 alt

Clive Tanner award – ‘Mother’s Protection' by Roy Essery of Colchester Photographic Society.
 alt

Peter Young award – ‘A Gentle Stroll’ by Judy Hodgson of Wisbech +DCC.
Judy exclaimed with delight when she saw her print on the stand for an award.  It is always good to see the actual photographer there on the day to receive their award and see their reaction.

It was lovely to see a couple of individual awards going to members of clubs which did not get into Round Two.
