Image of the year.

Were planning an 'Image of the Year' competition, every member is invited to enter up to 3 images, it must have been taken during 2012, the one's they feel are the best they've taken during the year, any subject, Arthur will spend a bit of time talking about them then the members present on the night will be asked to vote for 'Image of the Year'

Bring your images with you on the night, on a memory stick, please sort them out before coming perhaps you could name them 'your initials & 001' (ie. PIP 001 etc.)

The winner will receive a book containing all of the images entered with their winning image on the cover, I will produce the book using Blurb,com you will be able to buy a copy if you want, but I will present the winner with a free copy of the book.

This could be a super record of our 2012 work so please spend a bit of time, sort out your images, if you want to give them to me before the night that would be good to save a lasdt minute rush to get them on the computer.

Please enter even if you can't come along on the night.

    Us girls have to stick together so when you tell us off it's all in one direction Te He . Peter many thanks for running Image of the year should we not all donate something towards the prize you should not be out of pocket.?

    December 13, 2012

    • Peter P.

      I enjoy running the group and insist there are no donations, it comes out of the pocket money Enid gives me each week, and I go without dinner and save my dinner money, thanks for the offer but not required.

    Another good night and a brilliant way to end the formal meetings for the year. A superb collection of piccies from the members and Arthur being our guide for the evening. Just goes to show how much variety there is in our little group, as well as a lot of talent!

    December 13, 2012

    December 12, 2012

  • colin l s.

    Hi Peter,

    I tried to email you my images last night, but it was rejected.

    Can you confirm your email address so I can try again today.

    Thanks

    Colin Sargent

    December 12, 2012

    • Owen M.

      Colin, the email address is in this discussion thread: http://www.meetup.com...­

      If it gets rejected it could be down to the size of the attached files, so try sending smaller images (no larger than 2000x1500 pixels) if it fails again

      December 12, 2012

    • colin l s.

      Thanks Owen, got it sorted. Just me being a bit Dim last night. Forgot to put the dots in Peters email address. He's got them now.

      December 12, 2012

  • Bill W.

    Not sure about entering competition. I am sure that the winner will be landscape, wildlife, or a castle somewhere. I can't really see any of my shots winning. (boo hoo)

    December 3, 2012

    • Stephanie M.

      Oh Bill !!! You must enter... lets face it Gezz does!! ;-)

      December 3, 2012

    • Dave C.

      Bill - you could easily get a vote from me, and many others in my opinion. Anyway it's the taking part......... :-)

      December 11, 2012

  • Mary G.

    Can I have the email address where to sent the images to, incase I cant get there AGAIN :))

    December 6, 2012

    • Susan J.

      i have emailed it to you

      December 6, 2012

  • Julie P.

    I agree! It's a bit of fun and winning doesn't matter, its nice to share our images and get constructive feedback from each other. Thanks for organising Peter.

    December 4, 2012

  • Peter P.

    As well as a bit of fun, with a prize at the end of it, It's also a showcase for us to show other members what we consider to be our best shots of the year, win or lose is not really the point - but to show our images to other members, thats what it's all about.

    2 · December 3, 2012

  • Peter P.

    Bill, I would try to encourage everybody to enter, we cover a wide range of subjects which includes your favourite, your images are liked by a lot of members so please enter, it's not only the winning it's showing other members what good shots have been taken during the year. it should be compulsory to enter, so even if not coming on the evening please enter and make it a good evening to finish the year on.

    1 · December 3, 2012

    • Bill W.

      Oh alright then Peter. You've twisted my arm. l shall see what l can do :)

      December 3, 2012

    • Stephanie M.

      yes agree with Peter, please do, it wouldn't be the same without your great street shots!

      December 3, 2012

  • Peter P.

    I have sent you an email about both your entry and the macro lens.

    December 3, 2012

  • Susan J.

    I sent those direct to your email, I also sent one via meetup about your macro lens, think you didn't receive that one.

    December 3, 2012

  • Peter P.

    Hi Susan, As this is the first year for Image of the year, I wanted to keep it easy and straight forward, perhaps next year we can change it. --- Yes I did get your entry and sent you an email to confirm, however I did not send you one confirming your changing one of the images.

    December 3, 2012

  • Susan J.

    perhaps there could be different categories as well as an overall winner.
    Peter did you get my email the other day? i dont think people are getting them i emailed Jacqueline twice too and didnt get any responce :( or perhaps your all just ignoring me :)

    December 3, 2012

  • Stephanie M.

    I thought we were bringing them on a stick?

    December 1, 2012

  • Peter P.

    So far, apart from my own I have only two images sent to me!!!!!!

    December 1, 2012

  • Graham H.

    Hi Peter, I would like to enter some images. Not sure if I can get there as working in Surrey (again unfortunately). Is that still ok?
    What time will the evening start?

    November 28, 2012

  • Peter P.

    Any image taken this year even if its already been on the site or even a judgement day shot,

    August 22, 2012

  • Stephanie M.

    can these be images we have already used within the year, or totally new ones?
