This year's annual exhibition, held again at the Longshed at Whisstocks, attracted a total of 536 visitors over the 3 days, who were able to see work by our members, including 74 prints and a rolling display of 60 projected digital images. We are grateful to everyone who came along and for their positive comments in our visitors' book.
At a members' presentation evening our guest Alan Sarsby was set the difficult task of selecting the best images. Alan is well-known to us for the informative and amusing workshops he has presented at club meetings, and his presentation of the winners was equally entertaining. In the print section the winner was Ron Maxfield with his image "A Heart of Stone", second was Sue Garrod with "Brian's Looking for Florence" and third was Ann Nunn with "Dead Bug". The winner of the PDIs was Kirsteen Crossan with "Woman's Best Friend", second was Sue Garrod with "Pinney's Smoked Mackerel Delights" and third, Sarah Bynom with "Bleak House". Alan also selected a number of prints and PDIs as highly commended. Click here to see all the winning and commended images.
Also on display were a number of boards put together by members in response to a "Scavenger Hunt" challenge They were given 6 subjects to find and photograph, and mount together on a single board as a collection, and visitors were invited to vote for their favourite collection. The winner of this "peoples' vote" was Steve Stammers.
Our thanks go to Alan Sarsby for taking on the unenviable task of judging the images, and also to all of our members who contributed to the success of the event by providing their images, and by stewarding and helping to set up and take down the exhibition.
