31st March: Annual Nature and Projected Image of the Year Competitions

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 to everyone who joined in our annual competitions and hope everyone enjoys viewing the videos.  Huge thanks to Martin for his informative and enjoyable judging.
