The Trophy, for the best set of four All-Round monochrome images, was won by that master of the monochrome Donald Crabtree with a total score of 71 out of 80 points! His prints were: 'Wells Cathedral Steps', 'Loving Arms', 'Jock and Jan, Street Musicians, Greenwich' and 'Neolithic Dwellings, Stonehenge'. Michael Myers came second with 59 points and Sandra Cockayne third with 56 points.
The WH Hammond Trophy was for the best single print of a portrait, figure study or image of people. It was won by Rais Hasan with his classic portrait "Black History", see above.
