Next Club Evening
Date:         16 October 2017
Time:         18:45          

Set Subject: FORGOTTEN MEMORIES = (Manipulation = YES)

Dear NPC Member

We have already announced the club's change to full HD club entries.

This mail serves as a reminder and/or notification to all members that all Photovault entries from this month (November) will be in 1920 x 1080 pixel format. The following implications are relevant: 

  • Max file size is now 2MB  (not 500kB as previously)
  • When the old format files are submitted, they will be  projected much smaller on the screen and judges will possibly penalize you
  • The current 1024x768 format photos can not readily be up-sized to 1920x1080... you will be 'stretching' pixels and loose quality 
  • You will need to resize your photos from the original jpg or RAW file to 1920x1080 pixel size.


This topic deals with new artefacts that self-consciously refer to particular modes, motifs, techniques, and materials of the past. It can also imply styles that have been created in the past. Retro style refers to new things that display characteristics of the past. This topic does not refer to old photos, but rather old things that you have photographed recently! These photos must convey the mood and character of things in the past or memories from the past . It can also include signs of decay, rust, abandoned and disregarded items or objects. It allows manipulation and lends itself to creativity, including composite photos. Remember that all elements in your photo must however be your own work /creation . Enjoy this challenge and have fun!
