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.
Phew! After a huge day on Saturday, images for the 47th Dunedin Festival of Photography have been selected. Congratulations to all who have had an image, or images, selected for the exhibition. You may have heard through the grapevine that we had a record number of entries this year – a total of 1553 images across all the sections! A full list of exhibition acceptances will be available once the exhibition opens.
Entrants should now have received notification of their results. If you have not, please contact Melanie (webmaster.DPSNZ@gmail.com).
The exhibition will be open at the Dunedin Community Gallery from 5th-10th November, 10am-6pm. If you are unable to visit, we will make a slideshow of the digital and print exhibition available once the exhibition opens.
This year we held our Spring Print Exhibition at the Dunedin Community Gallery (28-31st August). Having the exhibition on for a few days gave members a chance to view the images multiple times if they wanted, and enabled us to share our work with the public.
Along with the Spring Print exhibition, we had the Dunedin Junior Photography Exhibition on display. 2016 was the first year for this and we were pleased to get 18 entrants who submitted photos on variety of subjects. 10 images were selected for the final exhibition. We look forward to running this again next year.
In addition we presented a digital exhibition of member’s work from the Filderstadt Photoclub (FCF). In 2015 a member of the FCF visited a DPS exhibition, and this has led to several interactions between the two clubs this year.
We had a good number of visitors through the gallery, and all positive feedback. Our second meeting of the month was held on Mon 29th at the Community Gallery where we heard feedback from the judges (Paul Sorrell, Natural History; John Hart, Open) and got to catch up with one another over drinks and nibbles.
Congratulations to everyone who had images accepted for the exhibition. The honours and awards images are in the slideshow below.
