LFPS Events and News

Saturday 22 April
MCPF Championship

This year's competition between clubs belonging to the Midland Counties Photographic Federation was our most succesful ever. We achieved 2nd place in the Projected Digital Images (PDIs) Competition and 6th place in the Prints Competition. As a result of our high scores we will be one of four clubs (together with Smethwick PS, Arden PG and Cannock PS) contributing to the MCPF entry to the Inter-Federation Competition of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) on Saturday 15th July 2017 at the University of Warwick. Additionally, one of the judges selected 'Jumping High' by 'Jim Monk' for an individual photographer award. The picture below shows our current president Susan Giblett receiving our club's award and Jim Monk receiving his personal award.
