Images from the LPS 2020-21 Season 5th Monthly Competition
Letter extract from the President of LPS:
During the 2020-2021 season the Society, like most other camera clubs, has had to change the way we do things.
Due to our normal meeting place being closed we moved all our meetings to online Zoom meetings.
Understandably some members chose not to join as Zoom was “not their thing”.
Our next season is due to start on 1st September 2021 and hopefully we will be back at the RAFA Club,
although at present we do not know under what restrictions, and we hope most of our members from last season will rejoin.
It would be very helpful if we could get some idea of who will be joining next season and I would ask all those who are thinking to renew their membership to let either Martin or Paul know so we can get an idea of what our income will be to enable us to plan for lecturers to visit.
Themes for the 2021-2022 Season
Monthly Competiton 1: Macro
Monthly Competiton 2: Reflections
Monthly Competiton 3: Bubbles
Monthly Competiton 4: Black & White
Monthly Competiton 5: People
Internal Competition Secretary
You may remember in a recent letter sent out, two members of the Committee have taken
the decision to stand down from their positions, our Treasurer and Internal Competition Secretary.
Whilst the Treasurer post has now been filled the post of Internal Competition Secretary is still vacant. This simply means we cannot hold internal
competitions at the present moment. Please consider volunteering to support Leyland Photographic Society and filling the post.
Anyone who offers to fill this vacancy would not be left to struggle with the job, Ruth will support you and she has already booked judges for the 2021-2022 season.
If you would like to help please email Paul. Thank you
2021 L&CPU Club Competition
On Saturday 20th March 2021 the L&CPU Club competition was judged on Zoom.
Leyland PS came 10th out of 41 clubs in the DPI section and 22nd in the Nature section.
March 2021 – 3 way PDI battle
Preston vs Chorley vs Leyland
Preston PS held a 3 way “battle” with 2 local photographic societies on the night of the 4th March 2021.
This year there were no prints as the images were restricted to PDIs only and the competition was held using Zoom conferencing.
1st Preston : 381
2nd Leyland : 376
3rd Chorley : 364
Congratulations to Preston on their win and thanks to all 3 clubs for their entries as the resulting evening showed a very high standard of work.
The next “battle” will be held, hopefully in person, at Chorley on Monday March 14th 2022.
Attached is a letter from Martin, our Club President, with an update on plans for the Club: the programme for the rest of this season (which will end on 12th May) and hopes for next season starting in September. Thank you for your patience and continued support through this difficult past 12 months. We hope there will be a return to something more like normal next season

The Barge Captain [Peter King] and Chasing Shadows [Chris Ellison] were knocked out in round one and gained one point each. Twisleton Scar [Rob Hume] went out in round four and gained four points. White Cosmos [Sandra Eastham] went through to round six and gained six points.

2020 Leyland Invitation Photographic Exhibition
Due to the on going Covid19 situation and the uncertainty about when photographic clubs and societies will be able to have face to face meetings,
Leyland PS has had to take the decision not to run the Leyland Invitation Photographic Exhibition this year.
We would like to thank you for your support in the past and hope that we will see you again next year.
Leyland PS External Competition Secretary.
