F&PCC Website Review
At the 2019 AGM it was agreed the Club Website deserved review and overhaul. David Barton was adopted as the ‘volunteer’ to oversee this operation. Please be patient – it might take a little while and there may be some hiccups – Watch this space…..
SCPF Select F&PCC Image
This DPI “Modern Day Mum” created by Duncan Lawler, was initially selected by F&PCC to compete in the 2018/19 Southern Counties Photographic Federation DPI League Competition, where it significantly helped to raise the Club average score. Then, the image was selected to represent the SCPF in the UK Inter-federation Competition where it attracted another respectable score.
Green Gosport Photography Competition
‘The Hampshire Culture Trust’ in collaboration with ‘The International Garden Photographer Of The Year’ sponsored the ‘Green Gosport Photography Competition’ to celebrate the green spaces and biodiversity found in and around the Gosport peninsula. The winner was Janet Barton with her ‘Passion Flower & Bud’ and second place went to David Barton with his ‘The Hideaway at Titchfield Haven ’. Both are longstanding members of F&PCC. There will be a pop-up exhibition open in Gosport displaying this work and that of the highly commended entries on 31 May and 3-8 June 2019.
