AGM News 2017
Congratulations to the Hutt Camera Club who won the 2016 Wellington Interclub Battle. WPS gave them a good chase right to the finish line but in the end HCC lead with a 2 point advantage.
Thanks to APPS for organising a great event and Helen Mitchell for judging such an exciting competition.
Well done to all the WPS photographers who provided the ten images and especially to Ian McIlraith and Dave Roberts whose prints got first place in their respective categories.
As usual, it was a fun evening of good club rivalry and socialising.
WPS was presented the Wanganui Cup at the Central Regional Convention as the winning club in the 2015 Central Regional Interclub Projected Image Competition.
Clubs from throughout the Central Region were required to submit a set of eight images, each image must be by a different photographer (click here to view the WPS set of images). The history of the Wanganui Cup dates back to 1959 and was originally awarded to the best set of slides but with the development of digital photography, the cup is now awarded to the best set of projected images.
WPS has now won the Wanganui Cup on ten separate occasions however this is the first time since 2009 so the news was received with great excitement.
Congratulations to the WPS photographers behind the winning set of eight images: Ross Collins, Ian McIlraith, Barry Mahon, Jenny O’Connor, Peter Rodgers, Gail Teale, Mike Timmer, and Glen Wheatley.
A presentation of the cup and certificates to the photographers will take place at the WPS meeting on 26 Nov.

Thanks very much,
I’m a volunteer with the Wellington branch of the Green Party. We’re running a fundraising event later this month that I think will be really interesting to you and your photography students. It’s an afternoon workshop with Craig Potton on Saturday 23rd May.
He’s in town for a short time only, and has offered to hold an intimate session (only 20 places available) where he will give illustrative talks on the art of photography, how to improve your photography and working with photography’s limitations. Participants are invited to bring their two best works (on a data stick) for critique.
There’s more information here: https://my.greens.org.nz/shop/craig-potton-workshop-wellington
I wonder whether you would be able to send this information out to your contact lists, or put it up on your website or facebook page?
