Selsey Camera Club

Turner Peninsula Trophy

Thirteen members attended this week's meeting to enjoy a fascinating collection of images taken from within the local area and submitted by twelve fellow club members. For this competition, the club’s rules clearly state the following: Entries must be clearly recognised to have been taken from or within the Manhood Peninsula. (ie East to West: between Pagham Harbour and East Head. North to South: between the A27 and Selsey Bill).

We began by welcoming our judge for the evening, Tim West FRPS, who gave his expert opinion on each of the forty-nine PDIs submitted for this popular annual competition.

Following a preview of all the images, each one was brought up on the screen for all to see and for Tim to comment upon and give a mark out of twenty. As always, it is fascinating to view the work of fellow club photographers, and I believe we all learnt a great deal from hearing Tim's interesting and helpful feedback..

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Monday 2nd March when Middleton CC will host the MSW Shield, the annual three-way PDI inter-club competition against the Witterings and Middleton camera clubs.

The venue for this year’s competition is the Jubilee Hall, Elmer Road, Middleton-on-Sea
PO22 6DZ

20 DPI entries from each club will be displayed in turn and scored by our Judge for the event, Hilly Hoar the President of Midhurst Camera Club.

This is normally a very closely fought contest which generates a good deal of good-humoured banter from all teams and an early arrival is recommended to ensure that you get a seat with a good view.

George Abel Founder of Selsey Camera Club

I am a great believer in community spirit, that curious quality, a sort of glue, that brings people together and makes a village run

When I arrived in Selsey in 1968 I found all I needed except what? ?

Being a photographer for my working life and mostly enjoying it, I realised that this was it, a photographic club. There wasn't one so I started one! That was how the Selsey Camera Club was born.

It was very satisfying to see the Club settle in and start to grow but after three years my itchy feet got the better of me and it was time to move on. As it was the least expensive place we decided that Australia was the place to be and so we became Ten Pound Poms!

As electronics and e-mail have improved greatly keeping in touch with the Selsey Camera Club is easy and it is so satisfying to see it firmly set in as part of Selsey life.

I'm unable to visit you to help celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary but I have already started saving for the next 50th so start planning.

George Abel. (Australia 2019)
