May Open Results

Print winner: ‘Teamwork’ by Andrea Thrussell

James Brew was our judge for the final regular competition of this shortened season, with just the Image of the Year remaining.  

James has visited us before to give presentations but this was the first time he had judged a competition for anyone.  As noted by several people afterwards, you would not have known it from his assessment of our images. 

There was the usual wide range of styles and subjects for an open competition and James gave thorough feedback, often offering advice about alternative composition or framing and sometimes admitting to ‘nit-picking’ the smaller details.
