Small Prints, Whopping Impact!
Seven Sisters Camera Club is unique in holding a series of themed small print competitions in tandem with our formal programme. The idea grew from a wish to have an informal competition which was open to all and easy and quick to prepare work for.
Members simply turn up on the night with up to two small prints and place them anonymously on a table. All present can cast two votes for their favourites on show and the top scoring pictures are later declared and attributed. The competitions provide additional interest on a regular Club night and are proving to be very popular. Here are the details from our latest, held on 22nd September.
The theme was Coastal Scene and there were 28 entries from 16 members.
1st “Sunset at Birling Gap” by Ray Beckwith
2nd “De La Warr Pavilion” by David Rossiter
3rd “A Tranquil Scottish Coastal Scene”
by Biddy Burgum
3rd “Iconic Bexhill” by Paul Carrington
3rd “La Corbiere at Sunset” by Sylvia Sherriff
Congratulations to all the above. The next small print competition will be on 20th October and the theme is Birds. 23/09/14
First Season Great Success
SSCC Exhibition at Birling Gap
The Club's exhibition is now open and is kindly being hosted by the National Trust in their the new Visitor Centre at Birling Gap. The exhibition will run for 3 months with changing themes. Entry is free (NT parking is £2) 10/9/14.
Photographic Open Day
The Club's first Photographic Open Day was held at St. John's Hall on Saturday 9th August and was very well attended. Visitors enjoyed a mix of talks and demonstrations along with an exhibition of members' work from our first season.
The day provided an opportunity to discover what the Club was all about and many new faces came through the doors to sample Club life ahead of the new season starting in September. The event is likely to be repeated next year. 10/8/14
Inter Club Competition
On the 17th February, we hosted an inter-club competition between Seaford Photographic Society, Bexhill Photographic Club and ourselves. The evening was a great success and was well supported, providing some fantastic photography and opportunity to socialise with two of our fellow, local clubs. The result was a tie between Seaford PS and Seven Sisters CC. Enormous thanks go to those from all three clubs, who made the evening so enjoyable and a repetition seems more than likely for next year! Thanks also to our judge for the evening, Frank page. 18/2/14
Good Show at Ross Cup 2013
We were excited to be one of 39 regional clubs to participate in this year's Ross Cup, run by the Kent County Photographic Association on the 23rd November. As an extra treat, we were delighted to have two of our eight entries pick up 'Judges Comments', being among only 50 images out of a total of 312 entries to do so.
It was a proud day for those of us attending when we saw our Club's work displayed in the exhibition area among such an impressive collection from the whole region. We were especially proud to have involved all our members in selecting our eight entries, this being very much a part of our Club's wide inclusivity policy.
It was a fun day out and we shall be encouraging even more members to get involved next year.
Congratulations to Eastbourne Photographic Society who won the competition. 4/12/13
