Currently we are meeting OnLine

As we are following government advice, our normal weekly meetings at the church centre have been cancelled. However, we are organising monthly competitions and are hosting virtual meetings. Details of these are circulated to the membership. If you would like to join us, please email our secretary.

Submitted Digital Projected Images (DPIs) must be jpeg. These can be presented in either landscape or portrait format; whatever the format used, the maximum width is 1600 pixels and the maximum height is 1200 pixels (see notes on resizing below). If an image is smaller than 1600 pixels wide or 1200 pixels high, there is no need to add a border to make it exactly 1600x1200 pixels. Note, when an image is projected a black boarder will be automatically added; also adding a border make it harder to use the image to promote the club on the website and other media.

The jpegs should use the sRGB (IEC 61966-2-1) colour space. The filename of the jpeg file must be the title of the image. The authors name must not appear in the image or in the title of the image.
