Annual General Meeting 2018/19

Dear Members,

Firstly let me say a very happy new year to you all.

The club’s annual AGM will be held on Monday 14th Jan 2019 at our usual venue, the upstairs function room at Iberico & Co restaurant at 18 Shelley Street, Central. The meeting will start at 7.30pm.

After the usual Chairman and treasurers reports the main business of the AGM will be to nominate and elect the various committee members and to discuss/vote on themes for the 2019 competition nights. Additionally there will be a few other small matters and any other business the members may wish to bring up and put before the membership.

As always if a Black Rainstorm Warning or Pre-No. 8 Special Announcement or Typhoon Warning Signal No. 8 or above is issued or in effect 2 hours prior to the meeting start, the meeting will be cancelled without notice.

Competition night – “Travel”

And so another year draws to a close. December 10th saw club members meeting at Iberico & Co for a combined Competition Night and Christmas Dinner.

The special theme for the night was “Travel” with 22 images submitted by the members. Below is a gallery of the images submitted….

 

Competition night – “Night portrait”

Big thanks to everyone who attended and/or submitted images for Monday 26th November’s competition night. The Special theme for the evening was “Night Portraits”. In addition we also had our regular Open theme with members free to submit images on any subject/theme. In total we had 15 images submitted for the Special theme. I would also like to thanks to our Judge for the evening; professional photographer Jeremy H Greenberg for the great critic on the photos!

Competition night – “In the Night”

October’s competition night saw the first of two night-time themed competitions (November features “Night Portraits”). As always huge thanks to go to our judge, Paul Cox (Paul Cox Photography), who took time out of his busy schedule to view comment and award points to the images submitted for our Special and Open themed competitions.

Below are a selection of the images submitted for the Special theme competition….
