Best of the Best, Print and Digital
Next week’s meeting (the Tri-battle with Norton Radstock and Frome Selwood) is the hand-in date for eligible entries for the new David Chedgy Best of the Best Digital Cup.
Prints eligible for the Patrick Emery Best of the Best Print Cup will the judged cold on the night of the competition (17th May).
The judge will be Leo Rich, DPAGB, APAGB, EFIAP/g, ARPS.
Photographs which were placed in the top 4 in this year’s internal competitions are eligible. You may enter those from the 4 dpi competitions for the David Chedgy Cup, those from the 4 print competitions for the Patrick Emery Cup (i.e. no crossover from digital to print or vice versa). Premier and Club Classes compete together, so potentially we can have 36 entries for each Cup. Take your chance!
Next Year’s Committee
The nomination sheet will be up at the meeting this week, and for following weeks until 10th May. Please give this some thought: the Club at present is thriving, but continued success depends on a strong committee. Check the website for officer “job descriptions”, and ask yourself whether you might enjoy joining the team.

This Week's Meeting
Our themed digital competition, Street Photography, will be judged by David Sage, ARPS.
The first half of our Warminster battle last week (prints) was close-run, but we pulled well ahead in the digital section. Judge Barry Senior was an excellent speaker, and gave useful advice too. FWCC notched up many high scores, but special congratulations must go to those whose photographs scored 20/20: Alan Denison, Sheri o'Reilly, Simon Johnson, Andrew Washington and Harvard Dallibar.
