2015 Annual Exhibition

29th March 2015
Dear Members,

Our Annual Exhibition will this year be held at Retford Town Hall on Saturday 9th of May. The Exhibition will be in the Council Chamber and will be open to the public from 10am to 4pm, free of any charge.

Members are invited to submit up to THREE mounted prints of any size up to 400mm x 500mm (also the maximum size of the mount) and any format. Prints can be colour or monochrome and on any subject. They don't have to have been entered for any competition and the only stipulation is that they should not have been entered for an annual exhibition at the Society before.

I would encourage ALL members to enter prints as this is your opportunity to show your work to others, even if you are not interested in photographic competitions. If you don't normally print your work you can simply get it printed at a photographic shop and stick it to a piece of card so that it can be fixed to a board at the exhibition.

We have around 80 members and, in previous exhibitions, the maximum number of members entering has been 27! So - please do enter your prints.

The prints will be judged by those that view them at the exhibition and a Trophy is awarded for both the colour and the mono prints with the most votes. As everyone has a different idea about what is a 'good print', this means that anyones print can win!

I will need help to set up the exhibition, man it during the day and then dismantle it at the end. I will therefore be putting out a 'volunteer' sheet at the meeting on Monday for you to sign up for an hour or so's duty on the day!

Nick Plant
Exhibition Secretary
