NEXT MEETING …    7:30pm   Thursday 27th February 2020

Ladies versus Gents – Competition

Our popular battle of the sexes, with ladies on one side of the room and gents on the other, with a brave Judge somewhere in between!  Our two team leaders and their helpers will be making the final selection of 24 images each with at least 1 but no more than 3 images from each person participating.  A fun evening!

Upload Deadline extended to 15th Feb…
… Ladies v Gents: Upload up to 4 PDIs to be considered for selection by the two team captains.  At least one will be chosen!  

STOP PRESS Wednesday:  Match-an-image competition has been postponed & we will now host the match at Shaftesbury in November (i.e early next season).  We will hold over any submitted images until then which gives you time to upload lots more: no deadline for uploads yet!

This was the second of this year’s cumulative competition for the Shuffell Trophy to find the Shaftesbury “photographer of the year”.  Although there is one more round to go, this second round completes the print section as our new format dedicates our last round to just PDIs (two per member).  So far, our new format […]

The Bradford Abbas Shield is a local annual derby hosted by Sherborne Bradford Abbas with entries from South Petherton, Wincanton, Yeovil and Shaftesbury.  The judge is always a closely guarded secret even from SBA themselves.  SBA to date has always chosen the subject but they announced in future the subject would be chosen by the winners however since they also won […]
This was the first competition of the 2019-20 season and thus the first experience of our new format for the Shuffell series.  To reduce the number of images on any one particular judging evening to a more manageable (and enjoyable) number, we have partitioned the 3-stage competion as follows:- 1st round: 2 Prints &/or 1 […]
Members can enter up to 2 prints and/or 2 PDIs in this end-of-season competition.  Entries may have been shown before in this year’s Shuffell competition or be entirely new.  Unusually, we had the same number of prints as PDIs, 26 of each which made for a very comfortable number of images for our judge, John […]
We host the Shaston Challenge to bring together a variety of neighbouring clubs each year for a friendly 4-way match with each club submitting just 12 PDIs.  The judge is kept secret, even from ourselves (except of course for Bill who has the nerve-racking task of planning the evening 🙂 ).  This year, our guest […]
This was our third match with Aspley CC who are a similar but slightly stronger club than us, judging by the results.  These international matches are interesting because they break across some of the fashions in photography as well as in judging.  There are also some differences in how competitions are run.  For example, in […]
This was the final round of our annual trophy competition to find our Photographer of the Year. It was originally scheduled to take place at the end of January but we had to postpone it due to the snowfall. We had booked Mike Weeks to come and judge our Ladies v Gents competition on the […]
