Hexham & District Photographic Society
Newsletter May 2013 Issue 62
The Council having been thinking of ways in which to use the 3 mothballed trophies previously awarded to Slide Competitions and it has been decided that we will use these as runner up trophies in the Open and Advanced Mono/Colour Competitions. As we have 4 competitions the Council will obtain another trophy and this will be known as the Jim Shipp Memorial Trophy. These trophies will be awarded at the end of next season.
The programme for the new season will be sent out within the next few days. As usual we have a mix of our own members, visiting lecturers, assignments and competitions. We are having an “auction night” in October so if you want to sell anything start hunting it out soon. Looks like another excellent programme.

FACEBOOK USER GROUP
A few weeks ago Bob Turner created a Facebook page for the society and the aim is to post information that may be useful to members. Additionally if you would like some constructive comments about an image why not post it and get some feedback. If you haven’t already signed up you need to contact Bob who will arrange it.
From a previous discussion on Facebook it was agreed that we would have a new page on the club’s website for Assignment images. We have the images from Valencia and some from the North Shields assignment and some from Haltwhistle. If you were at the North Shields or Haltwhistle assignments and haven’t yet sent your images for the website please contact Bob. email@example.com
