Tonight... PDI Competition Open and "Night"
It's the final round of our PDI league competitions for this season! 

Just 3 points separate our top two authors in the Advanced Class - Steve Bailey and Anthony Highet. The Intermediate league is being dominated by George Purchase, who has scored a whopping 14 points more than his closest competitor Rod Lacey. But with all but 7 of our PDI authors having a chance to scoop enough points in the final round to make a difference in the league, it's all to play for!
Chiltern Images Print Exhibition

This exhibition organised by Imagez and is open to any member of a camera club affiliated to the Chilterns Association of Camera Clubs (CACC). 

The selected prints will be displayed in the exhibition at Queens Park Art Centre in Aylesbury from 6th to 17th May 2019.

The exhibition will also be available online on their website. Every entrant is guaranteed to have at least one print selected (maximum 3 prints).

You can enter online via their website and then give your prints to George who will deliver them to the competition organiser.

Updating Your Publishing Preferences

Recently there's been a bit of chatter about how our top-scoring images are used in this newsletter and online, so the committee wants to take this opportunity to clarify how the Photo Entry preferences are used.

Croxley Camera Club will only display images in this newsletter or on our website if they score 18 or above in our competitions. Any lower scoring images will not be published.

It's important for the running of the club that we are able to credit the author of the images, publish details in our newsletter and produce score sheets and league tables for competitions.

The most reliable way for us to credit the author is to automatically generate copies of the images from Photo Entry which have the title and author name watermarked onto the picture. We already use these versions in this newsletter and from the next competition we intend to display the same versions online. This is the same as other clubs display their members' images.

Score Sheets and League Table information is also generated automatically from the information in Photo Entry.

What Do I Need to Do?

Photo Entry gives you control over whether your images are published.

If you don't want your image to feature on the website or in the newsletter then please select Do Not Publish.

The other options in Photo Entry all start with Publish. 

Due to our configuration all options starting with Publish will result in your images being published on our website and in our email newsletter with the Title, Authors name and distinctions watermarked onto the image.

These details are automatically generated from your details in Photo Entry so please ensure that your titles are suitable for publishing.

If you change your mind and would like one of your images removed from the website gallery then please contact George. 

What If I Don't Want My Name Published?

As a member of the club, your name may be mentioned in this newsletter or on our website blog as part of a record of events. 

If you wish to use a pseudonym to remain anonymous to people outside of the club then please let Cat know and she will amend your details in Photo Entry and make a note to our editors that your real name should not be mentioned in our newsletter or blog posts.
