KCPS 1st Meeting for the YEAR.

An early reminder that our first meeting of the year will be on Monday 13 February – a general catch-up for us all, planning for the year’s events, and a surprise item the committee are planning. The brochure for the year will be available at that meeting.


Wiltshire Cup & Bledisloe Cup 2017

Top of the agenda right now, however, is putting together two sets of images taken on the south Wairarapa coast by our members.  These are to enter in the Wiltshire Cup (four digital images) and the Bledisloe Cup (four prints, subjects must be taken in NZ).  A selection subcommittee will decide on the final sets.   Once we know which images are chosen for the prints we will ask for larger high-resolution files to print from. Some images may come from last year’s field trip but others are welcome.

Please email your images in the size you would submit for club salons: max 1080 ppi  on the vertical side, max 1620 pip on the horizontal side, SRGb and JPG.  Your images can be of landscapes, buildings, people, activities, seascapes, even abstracts… we’d like lots to choose from. They need not have been in a club salon beforehand. Everything you send will be deleted from the computer once decisions have been made.

The deadline to receive these images is Friday 27 January. Send to aviskovic@paradise.net.nz.
