On 13th April we held our Annual Print competition for the first time in two years, having previously been unable to meet in person due to Covid restrictions. There were no leagues, with all members competing equally, and 4 categories: open colour, open monochrome, nature and people.
Due to the competition being for physical prints I sadly have no digital images to show you, but huge congratulations go to all our winners which were:
- Open Mono
Bill Pickard with ‘Maasai Warriors’
- Open Colour
Gordon Mills with ‘Sunset Klong Muang Beach’
Gordon Mills with ‘Dalmatian Pelicans Lake Kerkin’
- People & Portrait
Ann Bench with ‘We Can All Be Different’
In addition, we hold an annual Lakeland Trophy competition which consists of a panel of 3 prints depicting Lakeland or Cumbria, and our 2022 winner was Jeff Bagnall with ‘Wansfell ponies’ – well done Jeff!
Our season has now finished and we are embarking on a summer break. Although formal meetings won’t be taking place, Club members will be meeting regularly in small, informal groups for days out and details can be found on our private Photoshoots Facebook page.
Our 2022/23 season starts in September. Details of the new programme will be available on the programme page of our website shortly. In the meantime, we hope you all have a wonderful summer – fingers crossed the weather will be kind and we can get out and about with our cameras!
