Our annual night shoot took place on Thursday 26th when we forsook our traditional Bradford locations to try the Leeds Dock area beside the Royal Armouries Museum.
Negotiating one of Leeds' biggest traffic jams, the magnificent seven from BPS met in the foyer of the Holiday Inn Express hotel on Armouries Drive in what used to be known as the Clarence Dock area of Leeds. The hotel foyer was nice and cosy so another deliberate effort was needed to get off the sofas and out into the night, looking like an SAS raid in our woolly hats and dark coats.

Our first print trophy evening of the session took place on Thursday 19th November. Both the Greenwood Trophy for best print by a novice and the Tom Scatchard Trophy for the best Architectural Record print were on offer. Although the number of entries was modest, the audience was treated to a very considered appreciation of each print by our judge for the evening, Graham Gage from Leeds Co-op.
The Greenwood trophy was won by David Hopkinson with his 'Dancing Girl' (see above). He also gained Second and Third places with 'Orchid' and 'U Bend on the River Doe' respectively giving him a clean sweep of the places but Beverley Keighley was awarded Highly Commended for her print entitled 'Poppy'.
