PDI Panel Trophy – Tuesday 28th February

Viewfinders PDI Panel Trophy

Tuesday 28th February

Next week’s meeting at Viewfinders on Tuesday 28th February is the PDI Panel Trophy. This is always a well-supported evening with a good number of entries being submitted on a wide variety of imaginative subjects and themes. This year Peter Woodhouse from Salisbury Camera Club is coming along to judge the entries and it’s sure to be an entertaining night.

The Panel Trophy is a great opportunity to be even more expressive and creative through your photography. All work submitted should be new to the club, not having been entered into any other competition or assessment previously, and a panel is simply a collection of three related images on any theme of your choice.

This year preparation of the images has been simplified, and now only ONE image is required for each panel submitted. You just need to prepare your final panel image and simply submit that with your name and the panel title as the file name. It is no longer required that you submit the three individual images that make up the panel or show any titles on the panel itself. Updated detailed instructions can be found in the document Image Preparation for the Digital Panel Trophy via this link to the Viewfinders website. If you need any further assistance please contact Malcolm Richardson at internaltrophies@viewfinderscc.org.

The submissions will be considered on how the panel works as a whole, with Gold, Silver and Bronze being awarded plus any Seals of Merit the judge feels are appropriate.

The number of entries per member is unlimited but there is usually a high level of submission to this competition and it will be up to the Trophy Secretary, Malcolm, to restrict the numbers to a manageable amount for the evening. You can indicate your preference for inclusion in the usual way by adding a 1 to the file name of your first choice panel, and a 2 to the file name of your second choice panel, etc.

All that remains is to submit your panels to viewfinders@hotmail.co.uk attaching your single panel images in the correct format by midnight Friday 24th February at the latest, and we look forward to a very interesting and creative evening.
