Photo show will be open to public

Robert Sutcliffe

THE annual exhibition of Huddersfield Photo-Imaging Club will open to the public at Huddersfield Art Gallery on March 19.

Around 130 framed prints will be on show and some 80 projected images will be displayed digitally on a flat panel television.

The exhibits will include the winners in a range of categories, the names of which will be announced at a private preview on the eve of the public opening.

This year, the eight print classes includes a new “set subject” category – the theme this year being Our Town.

The other sections are: general colour (pictorial/portrait/ sport/action); general monochrome (as before); applied colour (natural history and record); applied mono (as before); and entry level colour (for relative beginners and new club members).

There is also author’s panel, a non-competitive section for members to present a group of prints on a theme or using a particular technique.

Winners will be announced at the preview in Huddersfield Art Gallery on March 18. The exhibition is on until April 10, Monday to Friday 10am- 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm.
