Day & Time: 2nd Friday of the month from 2 pm – 4 pm

Venue: Victoria Hall – currently suspended

Please note that due to current COVID-19 social distancing and safety precautions the Organising Team has concluded that it is impractical to meet physically at the Victoria Hall. Instead, we have started to use Zoom virtual meetings and continue sharing photographs via the Ash U3A Beacon email system.

Here is the latest bulletin from the group which you can download by clicking the link:

Ash U3A Photography Group 2020-21 bulletin No 8

The monthly photo subject, with members submitting up to three colour photos and one black and white photo, is a major feature where the emphasis is on the story behind the picture rather than its technical excellence. The theme for April 2021 is “Rainy Days and Clouds” (April showers).  Deadline for submission is 9th May 2021 for review at the next meeting on 14th May.

The decision on whether we hold an annual photography competition in 2021 is still under review due to the constraints imposed by the COVID pandemic. Last year’s annual competition was held in June 2020. There were 60 entries from 20 members in three categories:

  1. Colour theme – black & white
  2. Specific subject – Water
  3. Open category.

You can view the winning entries and the judge’s comments on them by clicking this link and downloading:

We were very grateful to Glyn Morgan for judging the 2020 competition with support from Jane Morgan.
