Yorkshire Photographic Union Annual Exhibition (YPU) 2018
The YPU is a federation of camera clubs in Yorkshire. There are 75 affiliated clubs and Sheffield is one of the founder members. All the different federations are then affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).
The YPU holds an Annual Exhibition which travels around Yorkshire and is hosted by a different club each year. For the first time in 51years, Sheffield PS is hosting the Exhibition, which will be in Channing Hall in the centre of Sheffield.
We are expecting several thousand entries from around 800 YPU members. Three judges will select the final 200 prints and 200 DPI’s. The exhibition will showcase the best amateur photography around. The details can be found on the information page and a map shows all the locations.
The Society holds an annual Perspectives Photographic Exhibition for one or two weeks in the Sheffield Winter Garden each November. This is an exhibition of prints that are displayed on the Society’s own free-standing display boards. Up to 40 boards can be available and members have the opportunity at the start of each season in September to sign-up to have a board on a first come-first served basis. Then it is up to each member to prepare and show a selection of prints of their own work. Each member’s panel includes a short narrative on the background of what motivated them to take their chosen pictures.
Also included in the exhibition is a panel of historic images taken around Sheffield. The Exhibition is seen by hundreds of members of the public every year and is a wonderful showcase for the Society.
It has become the custom for the Lord Mayor of Sheffield to open the Exhibition on the first Monday.
