IoPHT Photo Comp 2016
The 32nd annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photographic Competition and exhibition took place over Fri 14th Oct to Sun 16th. There was a lower number of entries this year with just 358 prints, but the quality of images was very high as usual and were enough to fill both main halls. See the "IoPHT Photo Comp" page for a report and list of winners. See www.stgeorgesreforne.co.uk/ for some of the winning photos.
The next Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday 28th March at 7:30pm.

Synergy Grant
We have kindly been awarded the sum of £340 towards a replacement laptop and Photoshop Elements license. This has enabled us to update our original one and also gain an extra machine for us to use during image-editing tuition sessions. The club wishes to thank Synergy for this opportunity.
