Due to the Coronavirus, we have cancelled all meetings until further notice but we are working to build a programme that will allow you to participate remotely. Having run three Online Competitions successfully we’re looking forward to the future. Keep well and safe and keep watching this space.
Recent Competition Winners. Congratulations to the authors!
Thanks to everyone who joined us for our first Zoom meeting, it was great to see and hear you all as we went through our plans for the coming month and beyond.
We have a new programme based on a four-week cycle, culminating each month with an online competition. The first challenge has been sent out to members and we look forward to next week’s Zoom meeting where we will explore it in more detail.
It’s becoming a truly inter-active world and we hope everyone will enjoy it with us.
Stay safe and well.
Our Annual Nature and Projected Image of the Year competitions were judged yesterday by Martin Patten whom we thank very much for video recording them.
The Nature Trophy goes to Julia Wainwright for “Gentoo Emerging from the Sea”, with John Draper’s “Plucked Feathers” second and Julia’s “Sprinting Cheetah Cub” third. Highly commended were Ian Robert’s “Harvest Mouse and the Red Rose” and Trevor Alexander’s “Orange Tip Butterfly”. Many congratulations to them all.
It was Julia’s night as she also won the Projected of the Year trophy for “White Horse Running Free”; John was bridesmaid again coming second with “Full Throttle and Go” and Avril Candler’s “Nectar Gatherer” third. Ron Churchill’s “Time Transfixed II” was highly commended and Ian got another highly commended with “Old Man on a Bridge” – special congratulations to Ian who only recently moved up from the Beginners.
Congratulations again to Julia for her deserved success, to the placed and highly commended photographers.

Thanks very much to our judge Cat Humphries for helping us through are first ‘remote’ online competition. Cat videoed her judging so although we couldn’t be present we are able to hear her commentary and view each image as she scored. We’re working on other technological solutions but in the meantime we’re grateful to be able to ‘keep calm and carry on’!
Congratulations to George Demetriou who won the Beginners’ competition with “Sri Lankan Sunset”. George also scored 19 points for “Thai Water Market” and 18 with “Here’s Looking at You”.
The Open competition was won by Avril Candler with “Dawn Over the Dunes”; Julia Wainwright’s “Thirsty Blue Tit” was second and her “Bald Eagle in a Snow Flurry” third. John Draper also scored 20 with “Posers”.
