ADAPS Year book:

We are planning to produce the next edition of the ADAPS year book soon. The schedule has slipped, partly due to Covid but it is intended to establish the end of the club year and the AGM as the appropriate time to publish.  This will allow us to feature the winning entries from the annual competition as a showpiece for the club together with the usual content of members images.

Members are invited to submit a small selection of your favourite images from the past year.  We will publish entries from everyone who submits and, depending on the total number of entries, we will probably include 2 -3 images per member. The selection of images is based on your own preferences and is not judged, but it would be helpful to submit up to 6 images, to allow some editorial selection to provide a variety of styles and subjects through the book.  Please feel free to indicate your preferred images in your selection.

Submission is now open. Images can be sent by email to or can be handed to me at club nights on a usb stick or sent via a cloud service.

Annual General Meeting:

It is nearly the end of our club year and that means that the AGM is due at the end of April.  All posts will be up for election. Any member who has been paid up for at least a year may stand for election to the committee or one of the named roles, with the exception of chair which requires previous membership of the committee. Please note that it is not allowed to hold more than one post including chair, secretary and treasurer at the same time.

Committee membership is an excellent way to contribute to the success of the club and to influence it’s activities. The committee meets once a month, on a Monday evening but all members contribute their own skills and expertise to the wider membership.

A list of available posts will be published on the notice board at the club. If you wish to stand, please add your name together with the signatures of a proposer and seconder (who should both be paid up members of the society).  Any one who wishes to discuss the role can speak to any of the existing committee members informally. The nominations list will close 24hours before the AGM and if necessary an election will be held at the AGM. 

Any member may bring an item to the AGM for discussion but only items identified at least 24hours before the meeting and added to the official agenda will be voted upon.  If you wish to raise an item please see the chair or any of the committee members or add a comment to the thread in the forum.

Annual competitions:

The annual competitions will be held in April – print 13th April, dpi 20th April.

The categories will remain the same as previous years and details are published in the competiton rules  .

Important information: There are two important changes to the competition this year.

  1. After last years print competition it was decided to limit print entries to 2 per category for each entrant. This is to provide adequate time for judging.
  2. It has been agreed to remove the overflow rule and therefore any images which fulfill the criteria for a specific category, particularly nature, portrait and creative may not be entered into the open colour competition.
