Congratulations to club members David Mellor and Andy Gilbert, each having recent success in external competitions.
Andy Gilbert recently celebrated double success with 2 of his entries into the "Stockton Heath Festival – Photographic Competition" earlier in July. The subject was “Nightlife” and Andy took first prize (£30) for the "Judges Choice" with his image “Rockin’ at the Parr Hall” and another £30 first prize – for the "Peoples Choice" (voted by the public), “Liverpool-Albert Dock”. Andy said he was delighted and surprised, especially with two wins and it also being the first time he has entered this annual competition.
The Club held its first competition of the Club year last night, with a much improved entry in the print category. Over all 29 prints were judged last night, along with 39 digital images - marked change from the normal balance of images. It was great to see so many newcomers to the print competition (myself included as these were my first print entries).
The competition was judged by Janice Barton CPAGB BPE2 from Warrington Photographic Society. Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition. The winners and placings were as follows:-
