WCPF Travelling Print Exhibition 2015 - 2016

The Travelling Print Exhibition (TE) is made up of prints have been chosen from those high scoring prints selected for inclusion in the 2015 WCPF Members Exhibition but that did not quite make it into the final selection for hanging at the exhibition venue.  There is only room to display around 150 prints in the Medieval Hall at Buckfast Abbey where the exhibition is on show this year.  The remaining selected prints are circulated to many of the WCPF clubs so that these excellent, high scoring prints can be enjoyed and appreciated by their members.

The 2015/2016 rota was circulated to the clubs some time ago, and is also shown on the TE page of the WCPF website.  A number of modifications have been requested and the rota reflects these changes.  However, the rota as shown is now the final rota and changes requested by clubs from now on (6th July, 2015) may not be possible to make due to the programme commitments of other clubs.

The aim of the TE is to give clubs an opportunity to view and discuss the collection of quality prints, at a minimal cost.  The prints can be viewed in a variety of ways and there are some suggested approaches included with the documentation circulated with the prints.   Clubs are of course completely free to decide for themselves how they view the work.

There is a Comments Book included with the prints, that I urge you to use this.  Please be frank with your comments and share with us how you organised the evening and how successful it was The Executive will review those comments once the rota is complete and will where appropriate take account of these comments when creating future TEs.

We ask that you treat these prints with great care so that the following club, and eventually the owners of the prints, receive them in the best condition.  Each club on the rota will receive the prints for viewing from the previous club.  It is then the viewing clubs responsibility to contact and arrange delivery of the TE boxes to the next club on the rota in time for their club viewing.  A reminder will be sent approximately four weeks before the viewing date giving details of the club you will be receiving the TE from and the club that you have to deliver it to. With such a large area to cover and the large number of clubs involved it is inevitable that some clubs will be required to travel quite long distances in a short timescale to ensure that the next club receives the TE in time for their viewing.  In creating the rota the geographical locations of clubs have been taken into account wherever possible but please accept that it is impossible to create the ‘perfect’ rota.

Enjoy!

Here are some of the comments from the Travelling Critique Comments Book. 

"As usual it is good to see the variety of talent from groups in the region."   "We had a very enjoyable evening viewing a superb collection of prints"
  "A most interested evening with some excellent work - some of which surely should have made the exhibition!"  
"An interesting selection which triggered good debates about picture quality. It helped us to
be critical and analytical about our own work".
  "A very enjoyable evening, good variety of excellent images generating a lot of interest
from our members which led to lively discussion and debate."
  "We had a very stimulating evening looking through so many excellent images.  We structured the evening so that all the photos were seen by four separate groups.  Each group was asked to choose their top four.  It was not a surprise that there was a huge
variation in the choices and no real consensus as to which was the best!! "
 
"The format we decided was to have a knock out style competition.  We displayed 6 images for each member to cast 1 vote only on their favourite image, the winning image went through to the final.  Encouraging members to take a closer look at each image
rather than from their seats to decide.  It created members to be more vocally active without the pressure of individual comment.  We finally ended up with 12 images, then down to 4 images which we selected our overall winning image.  We found it much more
engaging evening than the usual critique night!"
  "We subdivided the club members into 4 groups each with a group leader, and subdivided the prints into 8 sets each set viewed in turn by each group.  This way every member viewed each print up close and comments were encouraged by the group leaders.  First second and third were allocated by each group for each set.  At the end of the evening all the firsts were displayed and an overall "winner" chosen!"
