The competition season ended on a high note on Wednesday with the Image of the Year.  All entries have been seen previously in competitions, and it was wonderful to see them all again in the same event. 

Judge Andrew Barton said he was impressed by the quality of printing, and at the end of the evening he noted that the overall standard of entries has increased greatly since his last visit.

The results were as follows.

Print of the Year:
1st: ‘Syrup Bubbles’ by Sue Clegg – 20 points
2nd: ‘In Chains’ by Andrea Thrussell – 20 points
3rd: ‘Fork Line Up’ by Sue Clegg – 19 points

The two winning images went head-to-head for the title of ‘Image of the Year’ and Andrew selected Paul’s ‘Peel Sunset’ as the overall winner.  Congratulations to Sue and Paul, and especially Paul for success in his first season with the club.  

Thank you to the members who are loaning their prints for our stands at the summer shows, beginning with the vintage show at Belle Abbey Farm, Colby, on Mad Sunday.
