On Thursday, 24th November along with 20 other clubs, we took part in Oldham Camera Club’s Mono PDI Competition in aid of The Christie Cancer Hospital and Dr. Kershaw’s Hospice. Each club submitted 7 images making a total of 147 images in all which were judged by Gordon Jenkins. Below are the final club placings and we tied for 8th place with South Liverpool PS.
Thanks go to Sue Champion, Patricia Keegan, Keith Fitzpatrick, David Melville, Malcolm Peacock, Ray Groome and Jan Wilding whose images we used. Special congratulations must go to Ray Groome whose image ‘Gypsy Girls’ was one of the runners up.
It was a very enjoyable evening and it was lovely to see so many good monochrome images. Even more importantly, the amount raised for The Christie Cancer Hospital and Dr. Kershaw’s Hospice currently stands at £915

Congratulations to CPS Photographer of the Year Jan Wilding who has been enjoying success on the Photographic Salon circuit. Just Three was awarded a FIAP Silver Medal at the Bristol Salon and also a BPE Ribbon at the Vale of Evesham.
Jan has written a few words about taking part in the salons:
“A couple of years ago, as well as entering our own CPS competitions, I began entering some of the Photographic Salons as a challenge to see how my images were viewed by different judges around the country. I entered the image ‘Just Three’ in to our CPS Open 1 competition back in September 2021 and it scored 17 out of 20 which wasn’t bad. Then in January this year I entered the same image into the Bristol Salon where it got an FIAP (Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique) Silver Medal with a score of 15 out of 15. I was so surprised I didn’t actually believe it until the medal arrived last weekend! Since then it has also gained an Acceptance and BPE Ribbon in the Vale of Evesham Salon”.
