Thanks very much to Melanie for putting the slideshows together for our recent Projected Image exhibition.
As most of our members will know, after we’ve run an exhibition, a field trip, a photo walk, or a big trip away, we usually gather images from those who participated to make a slideshow. Although we haven’t had many trips over the last year or two, we’re still collecting the slideshows, and you can view them any time, along with our seasonal and Festival exhibitions on our YouTube channel. For those who missed our slideshow of Arthur’s Pass, here you go!

The results of our Projected Image Exhibition were shown at our most recent meeting – massive congratulations to Gary McClintock for producing the Champion images in both the Open and the Natural History categories! What a coup! Congratulations to everyone else for their accepted and awarded images, and many thanks to our judges Graham Dainty and Mike Boyd-Clark for their selections and appraisals. And lastly, thanks very much to our Projected Image Secretary, Melanie Dick, for putting the whole exhibition together, and for producing these slideshows to show our great results! Enjoy 🙂
Melanie Dick has whipped up a fancy poster, featuring David Steer’s friendly Kea, to promote our exhibition which starts this week. Please feel free to download and print out the poster if you’re able to display it anywhere, and we hope to see you all there throughout the week!
The results of our second Projected Image Exhibition for 2020 were announced at the club meeting this week. For the first time, we used Zoom at a club meeting, so that one of our judges was able to present her comments ‘in person’, and it seemed to work really well. Watch this space for more Zoom visitors at meetings!
Congratulations to Stephanie Forrester APSNZ for her Champion Open Image Out of the Fog and to Simon Parsons for his Champion Natural History Image Albatross 1, and well done to everyone who had images accepted.
Thank you very much to our judges, Nicki Mora LPSNZ for the Natural History section, and Cushla Moorhead for the Open. We really appreciate the time they put into judging for us, and their thoughtful commentary.
The results are available here as a PDF and below in the two slideshows.
Now that things are looking a bit more normal back at Level 1, here are the plans for this month. As before, if we need to go back to Level 2, all face-to-face meetings will be postponed or moved to Zoom when possible. Hopefully there should be something here for everyone!

Congratulations to all ten members of the Society who had images accepted for the exhibition, and to the six who also received Honours awards.
