3rd. February 2020 – Martin Fry – 7th Cheltenham International Salon of Photography

SYPC Members were delighted to have a visit from Martin Fry (FRPS EFIAP/p AV-EFIAP ABPE APAGB) with his digital AV presentation of the 2019 – 7th Cheltenham International Salon.
Martin started the evening by explaining just how successful the Salon has become over the years by offering a few basic statistics –
The 7th Cheltenham International Salon of Photography 2019 attracted over 7000 entries
• from 61 entrants
• in 45 countries.
• 27.1% of the entries were accepted into the Salon
• and 84% of entrants gained at least one acceptance.

The Entries to the Salon are grouped into 5 sections
Travel Section
• Nature Section
• Monochrome Section
• Colour Section
• Creative Section

Each of the 5 sections was presented as an AV set to music. Not only were we treated to an enthralling set of images but the craft of setting stunning images to appropriate music made the whole experience even better.

Martin closed the session by encouraging SYPC members to seek acceptances to International Salons with a view to gaining distinctions.

Footnote – Entries are now open for the 8th. (2020) Cheltenham International Salon and close on the 1st April 2020.

A superb evening once again. We are already looking forward to Martin’s next visit to SYPC !
