MPS Update March 2014 – Important News

Coffee Morning 22nd March 2014.

This will the third coffee morning we have held. The two previous events have raised in excess of £100 profit, as well as raising the profile of the society and keeping us being involved with the local community.

To make these events successful we need your support, as MPS member either by helping to set up and take down, or serving refreshments, display and or selling some images or greeting cards.  A raffle or tombola prize would also be most welcome.

By raising this money we can provide a better programme, potentially start to subsidise some events and also keep membership costs down.

Please give a little of your time to support the Society by participating. To do so please contact Gavin Lake.


Calke Exhibition 29th March – 13th April 2014

We have for the first time been asked to exhibit at Calke Abbey on the above dates.  This is a great opportunity to show your images to a large audience.  Our exhibition will run alongside the Calke Photography competition pictures. It will be held in The Stables, which is located close to the National Trust ticket office and main restaurant.

We will have 6 display boards in place and will be able to show pictures on both sides of the display boards giving us 12 panels in total.  We are proposing these pictures our mounted and framed in the frames owned by the Society. Pictures can be any size and mounted the mounts not exceeding 500mmx400mm.

To take full advantage of this opportunity would members please let Dave Bell know if they are going to exhibit and how many pictures they wish to show? Each panel will hold 4 framed pictures. We would like each participating member to have a display panel each [4 pictures]

We are keen to show a wide range of work by our member so please participate.

Village Voice

The local monthly news magazine for Melbourne are keen to use are pictures in support of article for the society. To assist them with this they are asking for a bank of images to hold on file.  If they run an article about the Society then they would have to have these images.

Each image selected would be credited with the photographers name. The individual photographer would retain copyright to the image.

Again this is a wonderful opportunity to have your work published and again to raise the profile of the society. We have found that this visibility has an impact on introducing new members to the Society and retain membership numbers overall, keeping the Society vibrant and active.

To participate please let Gavin Lake have 2 or 3 of your images to submit to the Village Voice.
