During the medical precautions against Coronavirus, and until further notice, Sidmouth Photographic Club is providing an alternative programme of activities for members, online. This includes weekly meetings using the online meeting platform GoToMeeting, online judging of competitions, tutorials and guest speakers.
The emergency programme is available here in PDF Format and shows details of the events which replace the planned programme of summer walks and in person meetings.

In addition, members have been contributing to a weekly project on Flickr called One-a-Week, which follows a weekly theme and encourages members to comment on images and “fave” their favourite three. The list of themes is 30/3 - 05/4 Texture

The Club’s forum has provided a very useful private chatroom for members to share information and this has seen some thought-provoking and interesting threads developing. Access is by invitation through the Google Administrator and Print Competition Secretary, James Leacock.

The Club quiz, provides a humorous weekly challenge for members and for anyone who might be interested to test their photography knowledge.
