Annual Exhibition 2022

The aim of the exhibition, now in its ninth year, is to showcase the talents of the members of BWPS by displaying photographs taken by them either as prints, panels (a set of images) and in digital image form.

Many visitors who walk in to the exhibition with casual interest become genuinely engaged on seeing the Society’s work and the exhibition provides opportunity for members of the public to find information about BWPS, its ethos and programme of events.

The Exhibition will be held at The United Free Church, Upper Basingwell Street,   Bishop’s Waltham, SO32 1AC.

The opening times are:

Thursday 5th October     9.30am—5pm

Friday       6th October    9.30am— 5pm

Saturday  7th October     9.30am— 5pm

The Members Preview Evening will take place on Wednesday 4th October at 7pm

Sale of Prints and Cards

Visitors to the exhibition will be given the opportunity make a request to purchase copies of members prints. These requests will be passed on to the author of the print to make their own arrangements of price and production with the prospective purchaser.

If possible within Covid-related guidelines, there will be the opportunity for members to have cards made from their images which will be on sale to the public at the exhibition.

Set-up, Stewarding  and Teardown

The exhibition is only possible if members are willing to volunteer to assist with the set-up, stewarding and tear-down.  Volunteers will be requested in the weeks leading up to the event.

Entry details:

Each member may submit up to 3 prints for £5 (the cost for 1 Print is £2.50). A Panel of images is submitted as 1 print (depending on ‘size’ of panel).

Submission of Images for Screen (up to 3) is free of charge.

It should be noted that we may not be able to guarantee that all 3 images will be displayed due to available hanging space but if 3 images are submitted a minimum of 2 images will be displayed.

Submission of prints will be on a club evening or by prior arrangement with the Exhibition Co-ordinator.

JUNIOR COMPETITION

A major feature of the exhibition of recent years has been a photographic competition for those under 16. They have produced some stunning work and it is great to see the hobby being taken up by the next generation.

The winning pictures of the Junior competition will be on display at our Annual Exhibition.
