Not only disengaged but also immature, sarcastic and trolling if the silly little GIFs and recent posts are anything to go by.

What a strange way for an "action group" to conduct themselves on a public forum.

So we are just supposed to hunt around the forum for these "other threads" to get answers to our questions?


And even then they will only answer "a lot" of the questions on this thread?

What about the other questions?

And I agree that the tone and content of your recent posts on here are bizarre to say the least.

You seem to have time to post ridiculous GIFs, but no time to answer perfectly reasonable questions, or to provide links to your other threads.

any way i don't care about the wining photos now as we won't see them till after christmas, i hope the winners are named and the photos are put on the forum so we can see them. but i won't hold my breath. as the photos can be used for 3 years don't you think it's a good idea to start another East Dulwich Photo Competiton this will give the organisers time to PICK A WINNER.

EAST DULWICH PHOTO COMPETITION - EXHIBITION STARTS 5-6 JAN JEANNIE AVENT GALLERY

Following an incredible response from East Dulwich amateur photographers and Instagrammers, and a very difficult selection process, we are delighted to launch the East Dulwich "Me & ED" photo exhibition at the Jeannie Avent Gallery from 5-6 January 2019.

The submission process closed with a massive 411 entries, featuring a wide range of your favourite ED subjects, sent in by residents, visitors, instagrammers and photographers from the local community.

Judging took place at the end of the year, and after much deliberation and discussion, our fantastic panel of judges, comprising of residents, photographers, MPs, local businesses and artists, whittled 411 entries down to 20 winning shots.

All 411 entries, including the 20 winning shots, feature in an exhibition in the Jeannie Avent Gallery opening tomorrow and Sunday from 11am-4pm. We'd love you to come and check it out!
Jeannie Avent Gallery, 14 North Cross Road

These shots will also feature in an outdoor exhibition of banners mounted throughout the village, appearing in January.

We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated, our awesome winners, our fantastic judges and Jeannie Avent for giving us the space to show your photos!

We'll be releasing the winning shots over the next few days on Instagram at

We'll also be releasing them at the same time on our website:

eastDAG, can't believe you have the gall to post on here after the slatting you got last time, but you have, so here goes......... So it has taken this bunch of self appointed judges made up of a local councillor, a gallery owner, two photographers, a web site editor, an e paper editor, someone from an art club, a VA of an RA and a local retailer six months to select and "judge" 20 winners (5%) from 411 photo's!!! Really what took them so long? (oh,and no excuses, just some honest answers)

Don't repeat the fiasco and if you even consider doing it again, I'd suggest a group of professionals who know what they are up to, who can select the best pictures, who most importantly have the time, resources, capability and balls to do the job properly.

Wow, that's really unpleasant and vitriolic dbboy. Personally I think it's good that something creative like this has been tried and done, hopefully there will be more things like it.The first time's never going to be perfect but spitting nails at them and saying don't repeat it again makes it sound like they tried to organise a far-right march.

eastDAG, thanks for trying, I know what it's like to herd cats and get shit done whilst real life gets in way sometimes. By the way I think the judges sound like a good mix.

Hello EastDAG
correct me if I am wrong , your OP in the "what's on" section, stated the exhibition would run until 9th January. I passed by there today and everything had been taken down. What happened?

Kind regards
Lavender27

Ps I have also posted same message in "what's on"

These three pictures are very nice but none of them seem to have been taken in East Dulwich!

Seems a poor advert for East Dulwich that even its own residents think the best thing about it is leaving to go to a neighbouring area!

messageRe: East Dulwich "Me & ED" Photo Competiton - The Winners
Posted by nxjen January 08, 01:29PM

The autumn leaves one looks like it could be the walkway from Barry Road to the beginning of Nunhead Lane but I agree that the other two look more like Dulwich Park than East Dulwich.

And what is it with EDAG’s signature at the bottom - Village Wide Banner Exhibition. What Village? Or have Dulwich Estates agreed to banners being mounted on lamp-posts in Dulwich Village? That’ll be the day.

Hi Lavender
That was my mistake unfortunately. When we discussed the exhibition initially, the end date was the 9th.
However another artist needed the space for a commercial exhibition, and as Jeannie was kindly giving us the space for free, we had to cut it short. I'm really sorry about this. We MIGHT be running it again in the future if we can find the space. 411 shots take up a LOT of wall space, and we still have nightmares about the bluetack!! : )
All the entries however are here:

Abe - The original brief was "your favourite shots in an around East Dulwich"
So the shots have been bang on tbh.

Lots of variety of subject and locations over the 411 shots. You can find them here:

Hi Nxjen
I think most locals would class Dulwich Park as in their area.
And by village, I meant East Dulwich. I can change it to "Hood" or "Yard" to differentiate?
The banner exhibition will be limited to the boundaries of East Dulwich.

Hello DAGS

I missed the exhibition and have gone to your website where you say we can view all the photographs, I was under the impression that we could view them one by one and not the wall exhibition as placed in the gallery. I cannot see all the photos they are blurred and on enlarging the screen makes it worse.

Am I looking in the wrong place is there a separate place to view them one by one.

Kind regards
Lavender.

Hi Lavender

It looks like you are trying to zoom into a photo of the images in the gallery. That's the wrong page.

All the images are available to view individually here:
[loveeastdulwich.com]

Let me know this has solved your query please!
Hope you love the shots.

yep that's 5, where are the other 406???? You were part funded with public funds, seems like this whole thing is not being run either openly or transparently.

messageRe: East Dulwich "Me & ED" Photo Competiton - The Winners
Posted by eastDAG January 09, 04:43PM

Haha! Does someone need a little quiet time out D?

If you'd scrolled down past the 5 winners, you'd see not 406, NOT 407 BUT ALL 411 entries!!
Just scroll past the winners. That's all you need to do. Just scroll past the winners. Get to the winners, and keep scrolling. That's all you need to do. Just scroll down.... past the winners.... and HEY PRESTO!

Now, there are a LOT of images on that page, so the gallery will load in relation to the speed of your connection.
Broadband should be fast. On mobile, it'll be slower obviously. And within an adult nursery, load speed may be slower. But give it a go.

Please acknowledge that this has worked for you, along with your apology.

I had to open up 3 different browsers before the other images finally started to load - I realised the trick was to keep scrolling. It does strike me as a slightly pointless effect. Why the need to scroll to initiate the load?

I don't get anything under the "all the photos" section in Safari even with the scroll. Works ok in Chrome (both browsers on the same wireless broadband connection).

Apology, if anyone needs to apologise it's you and your motley bunch who have taken SIX MONTHS PLUS to select YOUR winners.

Your sarcasm does you no credit and as for quiet time, that comment was totally unnecessary.

You shouldn't have needed to be pushed to have published them all and it shouldn't have taken you so long. Hell will have to freeze over before you get one, you've got a VERY long wait.

Johnie: It's a "Lazy Load" Johnie. It loads on demand rather than placing the full download weight on the page launch.
I'll keep my eye on the page delivery and perhaps turn this element off. There are a LOT of images on that page however, so I'd be worried it would chug without it. Thanks for letting me know tho. UX is always appreciated.

Sidhue: just checked it in Safari, and the images do load. It won't be instant however as there are hundreds of images on that page. You will need to be a little patient on this page, but they will load.

dbboy: The photo submissions have been publicly available on Instagram from day 1.

I have some sympathy for dbboy: all a bit patronising when, let's face it, this is about local businesses wanted help and goodwill from locals to help build local trade! Your posts are disengaging some of your target audience.

Agree with Abe that few truly reflect ED. It would have been nice to see local landmarks reflected. If you think the village, the gallery and the park are extensions of ED I'm guessing you're new to the area!

I see this as the EDAG trying to do something positive and people now trying to tear it down.

Maybe those being critical could explain what they plan to do for the benefit of the local community?

It’s not the critic who counts etc etc
