Dave & Gay Ormerod, long time members of the club, who also serve on the committee and are the driving force behind our Biennial Exhibition, now have their images on display at The Central Library, at the top of the marble stairs, till Monday 8th August.
It's congratulations to three of our members,Neil Kingsbury, Paul McKenzie & Paul Weston, who today received notification from Dave Coates the UK FIAP Liason Officer, that their distinction application has been successful. This means they can now place the letters AFIAP after their name, in recognition of the success they've achieved in International competitions.
On behalf of all three of us, a big thanks must go out to John White who has helped & guided us through this tedious & complicated process.
Our next member to have an Exhibition of their work on display at Wolverhampton Central Library, is, John White. The display, entitled ‘In Foreign Fields’ is a collection of photographs of the battlefields & cemeteries of The First World War. The pictures, which were taken in Belgium & France over the last few years, depict the peace & tranquility that now replaces the carnage of 100 years ago.
You can view the Exhibition from June 13th to July 4th by going in through the main entrance & up the marble stairs.
Watch out for more displays from other members of our club in the near future.

For the "first timers" a separate area at the Institute will be available to guide you through your camera settings before jumping in at the deep end. You are guaranteed a fun evening and will take home more knowledge of your camera and some super photos. Look forward to seeing you Wednesday. Introduction to your camera starts at 7.30pm. Studio shoot starts at 8.00pm. To help cover costs of room hire and model fees there will be a small charge of £4.00 per person. Roy Jevons (Studio Secretary).
Although it’s been our summer season break, there has been no let up for our National & International Exhibitors. Neil Kingsbury has just received his BPE1* accreditation & Janet Griffiths is now a BPE3*…well done to both.

We still have the summer season to look forward to, click here: Summer Season for programme details
As you all know the first print competition of the season is on 7th October. To reiterate and expand on what was mentioned at last nights meeting with regards to entries, there are two key points to keep in mind:
1. All thumbnails submitted to the competition secretary must be in the same format as you would normally send for a PI competition (see, preparing for competition, on the Resources page for details).
The thumbnails are used for, amongst other things, uploading on to the website if the print is placed in a competition, and as a memory aid when selecting candidate prints for battles.
I'm afraid if we do not receive your thumbnails correctly, we will not be able to upload the images.
2. On the evening of the competition all prints must be handed in by 7:10pm on the understanding that anything that arrives between 7:10 and 7:30 will be processed IF WE HAVE THE TIME. Anything that
arrives after 7:30 will be excluded irrespective of what section they are in. This is to ensure that all received prints are cross checked against entered thumbnails, titles etc and that if any member says they’re entering but doesn’t turn up on the night, they do not get awarded a point unduly.
