Print Circle 8
Our circle was formed in 1944 our earliest record is of folio 26 dated March 1946. Our current membership is thirteen.
Prints coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd are awarded labels and are eligible for the Founder's Cup competition and also for Circle Eight's own competition for the Denis Wright Plaque for the best pictorial print over the year.
A notebook containing the Postal Rota with members voting indexes & names and addresses and previous folio results, together with Members' previous notebook entries is included. There are also sets of voting slips, address labels and red plastic seals in the pouch. Members write all sorts of things in the notebook, besides on photography.
Circle 8 has three internal trophies: the Centenary Challenge Cup, awarded for the highest aggregate score in the monthly folios for the Club year June to May, the Denis Wright Plaque, awarded for the best pictorial print selected by an independent judge from the Circle entries to the Founders Cup Competition, and the Vivienne White Cup awarded for the highest aggregate of points scored in the Founders Cup Competition and Travelling Exhibition.
