Many thanks to Judith Gimber, ably assisted by Paul Martin, for running this interactive and informal print critique workshop.  It was an informative and sociable evening full of top tips for improving composition, technical aspects and presentation.


22nd May: Print Competition #5

Last night’s competition was judged by Lloyd Moore.  Lloyd delivered his views clearly and awarded a wider than usual range of marks looking for work that had impact, showed emotion/involving or something ‘different’ either in subject matter or angle of view.

Congratulations to Julia Wainwright whose “Bison in the Snow” was awarded first of the evening; Trevor Alexander’s “Gasholders at Kings Cross” was second and John Draper’s “Reggie” third.  19s were awarded to Julia for “Meditation”and John  for “Pooch” and “Bluebell Wood an Artistic Impression”.  18s were scored by Ron Churchill, Judith Gimber, Alice Kass, Paul Liu, Julia Wainwright and Avril Candler.

Many thanks to everyone for supporting the evening and special thanks to Lloyd for his informative and thorough judging.
