January 19th 2021 7.30 for 7.45pm start

Creative DPI Trophy & Sport DPI Trophy with guest judge

David Gibbins ARPS APAGB EFIAP/b BPE5* CPAGB/AV

  

 

Tonight we have a triple treat.  Firstly we have a respected guest judge David Gibbins ARPS APAGB EFIAP/b BPE5* CPAGB/AV of Nottingham and as you can see by his qualifications he is very well appointed to do so.  Second and thirdly we have two trophy competitions.  We are very grateful that David has agreed to judge our competitions as normally the distance between Plymouth and Nottingham would prevent this.  Although entries were slow to arrive to both Trophy competitions we had a sudden rush at the end and I am sure you will enjoy Davids appraisal of both sets of images.  The Creative DPI Trophy always has some exciting and interesting images and the Sports DPI Trophy is growing in strength and quality each year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you wish to join us and are not currently a member, please make contact via the Contact Form on this website for further information.     If you would like to join us for a speaker evening, you can do so for a small fee - please make contact with us to arrange.

 

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, it is currently not possible for us to be able to use the church as a meeting venue and in line with advice from the Government, PAGB (Photographic Alliance of Great Britain) and the WCPF (Western Counties Photographic Federation), we are now holding fortnightly meetings via Zoom Video Conferencing.

What a bumper season we had last year

 

Plymstock CC did it again!!

 

 

 

 

In 2020 we won the Gerry Trophy

 

and the Tamar Trophy

 

 

      

 

Congratulations to all our members who made this fantastic achievement possible

 

 

 

 

 

Plymstock Camera Club moves onwards and upward!

 

Another fantastic result for Plymstock as the club improves its standing in the Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) 2020 Digitally Projected Image Competition (DPIC).

 

56 clubs in the region put their best 18 images forward and Plymstock came joint 14th!! which is up from joint 26th place last year.  Not only that, the highest score any picture of ours achieved, was a 12 (out of 15) in 2019, however this year, one image scored a 14 and two images a 13.

 

To add to the achievement, we give a massive congratulations to our very own Charlotte Douglas for winning a ribbon.  To win such a prestigious award out of 1008 images from the best in the west is outstanding.

 

Charlotte won a ribbon with her image entitled "Don't get beaten up!"

Clean Sweep by Plymstock Camera Club at the Inaugural Interclub Alliance Event

 

On the 20th November 2019, Plymstock Camera Club, Kingsbridge & District Camera Club, and Ivybridge Camera Club were hosted by Plymouth and District Camera Club for the opening opening Alliance Event. 

The evening and the 60 images were judged by Brian Northmore. 

We are proud to announce that Plmstock Camera Club received the highest total vote for its set of images from the Judge and Plymstock Camera Club member Ian Douglas, received 20/20 for his image Elgar Views Hereford Cathedral. 

 

There was an additional category where each of the clubs had in turn voted on the other 3 camera clubs images.  A statistical survey was carried out to determine which clubs' members voted nearest that of the final independent judge.  Following this survey Plymstock also triumphed in this area.

It was a great night and although there were one or two teething problems, Mr Brian Northmore did a great job appraising the images and awarding a score.  

 

 

Club Member Matt Curtin achieved success in BBC Radio Devon Photographic Competition

 

In the summer of 2019, BBC Radio Devon ran a competition to find 20 great images that celebrate where we live.  They wanted to celebrate our county and the talented photographers who capture so many amazing images of life here in Devon. The winning images are to be blown up and used to cover the BBC broadcast vehicles which are seen by thousands of people across the region.  

 

Matt's image of Plymouth Hoe was one of the winning images.

 

Well done Matt and many congratulations from all your friends at the club
