HYNDBURN and PORTFOLIO COMPETITIONS
We recently held two annual contests for members. John Lovall won the Hyndburn Trophy, which is three prints taken within the Hyndburn borough boundary. The Portfolio competition is split into two, one for prints and one for projected digital images, and each must contain seven images on a theme. George Spence won the print competition and Barry Noon the PDIs. View the entries via the links.

SIZE CHANGE
Members please note that DPI entries to all club competitions need to be 1600x1200 instead of 1400x1050. This is to reflect changes made nationally and by the L&CPU. In all other respects they can be processed and submitted as normal.

COMPETITION LOG-IN
Club members should enter images into competitions using the PhotoEntry software. Log-in HERE or in the Members' Area, which also has a user guide.

MENTORING HELP
Don't forget that as an Accrington Camera Club member it is possible to receive some photographic mentoring from a more knowledgeable or experienced member of the club. So whether you want to know more about your camera settings, how best to convert images to mono, or any other query - get in touch with our president Ian and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

LOAN SERVICE
Don't forget that members have access to equipment owned by the club. Laptop and projector - see Mary Braithwaite. Calibration Spyder - see Martin Yates. Slide scanner - see Harry Emmett.
