23rd February: North West Federation Inter-Club Final

What a tense and exciting end to the 2018/19 Print and Projected inter-club competition between Field End and Harrow! We won the Club Trophy by just one and a half points. In the projected contest, judged by Darren Pullman AFIAP, Harrow had a clear margin of eleven points; Field End won the print competition which was judged by Paul Radden DPAGB EFIAP/b PSA2 but with only a 9 and a half point advantage couldn’t quite bridge the gap. Commiserations to Field End and we wish them every success (well nearly every success!) for next year.

In the Individual Starred and Nominated Projected competition, Best Projected Trophy went to Sea Sand and Shadows by John Clare, with Highly Commended certificates for The Changing of the Guard by John Humphrey and Spring Pasque Flower by Harrow’s Dave Martin.

The Print Trophy was won by David Harris for Elemental Storm and Highly Commended certificates went to Rat Catcher by Nigel Cox and Beyond the Veil by Neetha Atukorale.

Many thanks to Amersham for hosting the afternoon, to the hard working organisers and helpers and of course to both judges who gave entertaining and informative commentaries.

19th February: Annual Landscape Print and Projected

Last night’s competition was judged by Terry Coffey.

The Print Trophy went to Alan Colegrave for his dramatic “Beyond 71 Degrees North Norway”. Dave Martin’s “Sunrise at Hill Farm” was second with Julia Wainwright’s “Yellowstone in Winter” third. Terry gave four prints Highly Commended and these were John Draper’s “Woodland”, Judith Gimber’s “Wreck of Demetrios”, Ron Churchill’s “The Borderlands” and “Bignor Hill” by Peter Polkinghorne.

The Projected Trophy was won by Alan Graham for his impactful “Threatening Prairie Evening”; Dave Martin’s “Fields 3” was second and Peter Polkinghorne’s “Rhossili Grey” third placed. Highly Commended images were “Woolacombe Beach” by Dave Martin, “Fresh Water Bay” by John Draper, “Penguins, Ice and Guano” by Alan Colegrave, “South Downs Way” by Peter Polkinghorne and “Early Morning Sidmouth Bay” by Avril Candler.

Congratulations to the trophy winners and well done to everyone who entered and supported the evening.

As always, special thanks to our judge, Terry Coffey for his commentary across both competitions.

12th February: Rosebowl Round 3

Last night’s inter-club projected image competition between Princess Risborough, St. Albans, Stoke Poges and Harrow was judged by Lloyd Moore. With a high standard of images it was a nail-biting evening which we won by a narrow margin. Commiserations to the other clubs.

We now progress to the Rosebowl Final, which comprises twelve clubs and takes place on 14th April at Amersham.

Many thanks to Lloyd for his judging and good wishes for the future to all the competing clubs.
