On 22nd January we held our second Print Competition Evening of the 2014-5 session. Three trophies were on offer giving a full evening's work for our judge, JM Newton.
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.
The JH Leighton Trophy, for the best single pictorial print, was won by "The Isle of Skye" a classic landscape entered by Brian Shackleton, who joined the club this year, see below.
Congratulations to the winners and food for thought for us all from the judge's helpful comments. Another great competition evening with some stunning entries and worthy winners!
