The idea is to provide a 'scholarship' to the talented who can will give back to DPC and in doing so receive a membership. The Scholarship is to be called 'UBUNTU', meaning I am because I belong. From this we extrapolate that we are who we are because we belong. Belonging means to care, to give, to teach and to ensure possibilities and growth.

Love Peter


21_F.gif Julietnn ,21_F.gif LydiaToo and 21.gif smardaz have been honoured and humbled that we are the Trustee's of this new Scholarship Fund set in place by 21.gif docpjv. We were tasked with finding 4 people who we could give out a membership to, and contribute back into this community with their gift.. After many discussions between us, we feel we have completed the first part of 21.gif docpjv legacy and we shall continue to do so in the future with further Memberships.

One of the biggest factors in this is your commenting, we all know how much comments are enjoyed by everyone and your standing total of over 15,000 comments is no small feat. Commenting, not only helps the photographer, but the commenter as well. It's a win-win situation and one that we would like you to continue. Please accept this gift membership and keep those fingers flying!

Your dedication to DPC and its members, not the least of which is the Free Study Marathon, is greatly appreciated and we think it should be recognized. Please accept this membership code and continue to help make this site a wonderful resource for both the learning of this craft and the enjoyment of it's its members.

Some have mentioned they enjoy your comments, all of us have enjoyed watching your growth as a photographer. We know you still have a lot on your plate with taking care of your son as he continues to recover, not to mention the rest of your family. We would like to at least take this one small thing off your plate so you can continue to contribute to what makes DPC so great...The People.

as I have responded to the email, I would also like to say Thanks here!
I really appreciate this, and while I have learned alot, I know I have a lot of growing to do as a photographer.
I also am looking forward to another year with you all... as long as you can deal with me. and if you can't... well... you're still stuck with me for a year! so ha!

Thanks docpjv and everyone else here!

Well, this is certainly a surprise!!! Especially since there are many others that have done more commenting that I. This is quite the honor to be chosen. Thank you Peter for your generous gift to our community. These are the kind of things that bind us together and make us stronger. Remind us (me) of why we are here.

I guess this means that I need to crack some knuckles and get the job done...I will do my best to honor your gift Peter...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and for considering me.
