So with the end of the club year approaching, and preparations underway for the Christmas party and end of year prizes to be awarded, we have ( as has been the case for the last few years ) some closely fought battles in both the A Grade and B Grade yearly points tables. It is always heartening to see photographers develop their skills and knowledge throughout the year, both in A Grade and B Grade, and I think the value of these monthly judging competitions prove themselves every year.
It has been another big year behind the scenes at the Club with lots of little changes, and some not so little changes, happening and lots of big things are planned for next year already.
One of the major events that will be happening in Jan / Feb 2019 is a Club exhibition at Creative Arts Napier. This has taken a bit of pulling together and hopefully we will get a wide range of prints and images to display, both as a promotion / celebration of what our little Club can achieve, but also hopefully to have our members who have never seen their work in print and hanging on a wall encouraged to keep pursuing the craft of photography with a goal of getting more images for the next exhibition.
As always if you are looking to find out about Hawke’s Bay Photographic Society and maybe joining you are welcome to come to our Club meetings which we hold on the last Tuesday of the month ( except December ), or drop an email to email@example.com and we will send you some information. We currently have 52 members but are always looking for more!
