We are very pleased to confirm that our judge for the first projection competition on 8th October (subject – Open) will be Peter Weaver LRPS,CPAGB, APAGB.

Peter has been to our club before and he is very happy to be paying us a return visit. With 20 years experience and broad approach to photography , Peter is ideal to judge this open competition.


From the PAGB handbook Peter says ;-
” I photograph anything I see, mainly in the UK, especially Landscapes, People and Events. I employ a positive approach to photography & encourage and coach rather than just criticise.”


Competition entries are due by next Thursday 24th September. Please send entries to the projectionsecretary@trowbridgecc.uk

This Season’s membership

No Comments

The membership fee for NEW MEMBERS the 2020/2021 season will be £40. This is a £5 reduction on the fee from last year to compensate for the fact that we are unable to have face to face meetings which we know everyone would probably prefer. Existing members re-joining will have an additional pro-rata discount due to the last season being finished early, the fee for existing members will be £30.

We can accept bank transfers or cheques to the treasurer. Please contact the chairman@trowbridecc.co.uk or give Kevin a ring on 07970 011772.
