Photographer of the Year Prints

14/08/2021

Some judges, for the time being, may not be able to physically attend the judging of the Photographer of the Year print classes—whether they know well in advance or not—and shall need the prints delivered to them in advance of the competition date.

We are therefore asking that members complete their online entries by the end of the Sunday (eight days before the competition date) and not by the end of the Monday as usual. Prints themselves shall have to be delivered either to a meeting, or (by arrangement) to the President, no later than the Monday before the competition date.

It would be much appreciated if members could supply a print out of the online submission when delivering their prints.

Online entries for the print evenings of the POY heats has been configured on this basis but shall be updated when the Committee are confident enough to do so.

Resumption of Physical Meetings

14/08/2021

The Society intends to resume physically meetings from September; we are however hoping to be able to allow members who are isolating to join us via Zoom.

Trials shall be completed before the first meeting and further announcements shall be made soon.
