The results of the Projected Image Exhibition for 2018 were announced and presented at the meeting on Monday 12 November. The Open Section images were selected by Trish and Alistair McAuslan. They were not present at the meeting, but their comments were read out by Melanie Middlemiss. The Natural History Section images were selected by Craig McKenzie who commented on each of the images as they were projected.
The awards, which are summarised below, were presented by our Patron, Ian Wyllie. Congratulations to all ten members of the Society who had images accepted for the exhibition, and to the six who also received Honours awards. Special recognition went to Andre Koschinowski, who received the Champion Award in the Open category, and to Gary McClintock, who received the Champion Award in the Natural History category. Gary was also awarded the F.H. Williams Memorial Trophy. Special thanks to Trish and Alistair McAuslan and Craig McKenzie for their careful selection and the insightful and constructive comments. Videos of past exhibitions and field trips can be seen here.

This is a helpful video showing how to mat an artwork/photograph. I don’t have all the different types of tapes that he uses, but I particularly like the way he attaches the picture to the backing board. – Melanie

The 47th Dunedin Festival of Photography was opened at a wine and cheese event tonight by Dunedin Photographic Society President, Kate Burton.
Kate thanked everyone for supporting the Festival with their entries; there was a record number of submissions which was great, but also meant the judges had to be a bit more ruthless with their selection. It has resulted in a fantastic exhibition however, and if you are able to visit the Dunedin Community Gallery between 5th and 10th November you will be able to enjoy the final results.
For those of you who are out of town, we have prepared digital versions of the exhibitions which can be viewed below.
