2016 Spring Print Exhibition Results

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.

Photowalk: Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year 2011, Melanie Middlemiss

Photograph the Chinese New Year celebrations with us!

We will meet at 7pm outside the Duke of Wellington pub on Mon 8th and find a good spot to photograph the parade.

There will be plenty to see and photograph with the Dragon dance, cultural performances and food stalls at the Chinese Gardens after the parade. And, if anyone wants to stick around, there will be fireworks at 10pm.
