Welcome to Portland Camera Club.

Next Meeting
This is on Wed 18th October and features an outdoor practical session - if the weather allows. It will involve light-painting at a suitable location and may well start earlier than usual. Email the club for details, or check here nearer the time for an update. If the weather is poor, we will meet in the hall at 7:30pm as usual.

Brian Lynch Challenge
The fifth annual Brian Lynch Challenge took place at Weymouth Camera Club on Tuesday 28th Feb 2017. Unfortunately, not much went our way this year as Weymouth took a 3-2 lead overall. See the BLC 2017 page for details.

Design a Logo Comp
  On Wed 7th September we held our first Open Evening which included a "Design a Logo" competition. The winning entry, by Hazel McKee, is now in use and can be seen above.

Joint Photo/Art Exhibition 2016
Our 5th annual joint exhibition with the Royal Manor Workshops Art Group took place in June 2016. See the "2016 Exhibition" page for a report of the event and the gallery pages with photos of all the display-stands. Due to other commitments, we are taking a break from this in 2017, but hope to run it again next year.

Annual Club Awards
We now have three annual awards which are presented at the AGM each season. These are "Photographer of the Year", "Image of the Year" and "Club Person of the Year". See the "Annual Club Awards" page under the "Info" section.

Club Emails
Please refer to this page when joining the Club to ensure that you receive all necessary communications as there have been a few email issues.
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 8th November 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.
