2021 -2022 Season

Despite the Covid-19 restrictions the 2021 MCPF Travelling Portfolio will be back out on the road this year, showing some of the best images from clubs across the Midlands. However, we have had to make a few changes though and will be PDI only images from this year’s Photofolio exhibition.

The show will be sent direct to each club by We-transfer, so there will be no need for clandestine meetings in Car parks across the Midlands to pass over those dark print boxes! Also, as there are no prints to move around you can choose the evening that suits you best.

Some of you have already booked the show for 2021/22 season and the file will be sent out to you in good time. For those who have not booked or have wondered what it’s all about then now’s your chance to book up to see the best images currently on show in the Midlands.

Just complete and return the booking form along with the payment for a full evenings’ entertainment at the bargain price of just £10.00

This year we would like to avoid cheques so payments please by Bacs or Paypal and use the following reference “Club Name – Portfolio21.

Some of the accepted images in the Portfolio 2021

 

The Travelling Portfolio is made up of prints and PDI selected from the Photofolio Exhibition held in June.  The winning images plus some of the accepted images go into make up an evening entertainment.  Two eminent MCPF judges make a commentary for the prints (first half)  and PDI (second half).  The Travelling Portfolio is a popular evening travelling around the MCPF and needs to be booked 12 months in advance. It will depend on your clubs location and how it fits in with clubs around you – clubs in the same geographic area of the Federation takes the portfolio on consecutive days, weeks, e.g. Tamworth PC have it on a Wednesday and pass it onto Burton PS for the Thursday, who then pass it on to Walsall PS ready for the Monday.  It is the  receiving club responsibility to pass it on to the next club in the sequence.  Check out the rota and see where your club could fit it in or check when a neighbouring club is showing it and go and see it.  (You do not have to play the commentary, make up your own evening).
