Summer Update

Hope you are out enjoying the weather! Over the summer, club members might get together a few times for Foto Friday outings, Field Trips, or casual photo outings. Feel free to send a message to the group if you would like to have people join you! You can contact Doug Poon, who will send out an email to the group, or send a message through the Facebook group.

June Banquet, AGM, and this year’s trophy winners

Our June banquet was a pleasant time to get together, go through the AGM, plan for next year, and recognize our Submissions Night winners. It seems like much of the executive will continue on, with some new faces for some of the volunteer roles. Please be in touch if you would like to help with any aspect of the club’s life! Thanks to the St. Albert Inn for their ongoing support, and for preparing the buffet. The 2016/17 category winners were as follows:

  • Print Theme: Barry Ryziuk
  • Print Open: Doug Petry
  • Digital Theme: Barry Ryzuik
  • Digital Open: Al Popil

Change for Submissions

There has been a change to the mat sizes allowed for submissions. The rules will be updated to indicate:   max mat size is 18x 24 inches.  Max size of the printed photos  continues to be 12 x 18.

February Submissions Night Winners

February’s theme was Minimalism, which led to many simple and beautiful submissions. One thing that was not at a minimum — winners! Congratulations to them all. This has to be a record for the number of ties. See the photos here: http://stalbertphotoclub.com/blog/sapcgalleries
