Midhurst and Petworth Parish Round-Up

MIDHURST Camera Club will be holding its fourth annual photographic exhibition, in conjunction with the Madhurst Festivities, over the August bank holiday weekend.

The exhibition will again be in the Methodist Hall in North Street, Midhurst on Saturday (10am-4pm), Sunday(midday-4pm) and Monday (11am-4pm) August 25, 26 and 27.

The cost will be £1 entry for all adults including a programme.

Entry is free to children and students.

Club members, from the very experienced to those relatively new to photography, will have their work on show.

The exhibition will include mounted prints, EN-prints (un-manipulated images) and digitally-projected images, which will be shown on a constant ‘loop’ in the side room of the hall.

The ‘image of the year’ will be judged during the exhibition from the images that won rounds of the ‘Print League’ during the year.

As in previous years, visitors will be able to vote for their favourite image in the exhibition.

The club’s new season starts on September 5 at a new venue, Cowdray Hall, at Easebourne.
