Illustrative Competition Results

Friday 10th March was the judging of our last monthly competition of the season which was "Illustrative". Our guest judge Steve Carr must be the most entertaining judge on the circuit as his constant banter and critique of the images on display were both informative and very amusing helping to make it an enjoyable night.

As usual the competition was split into "Print" and "Digital Projected Images" sections with the "Prints" divided into "Mono" and Colour" sub sections. All members competed on an equal basis regardless of their skills and experience and again many members who would have been classified as "Novice / Intermediate" last season gained very creditable awards competing against our most experienced members.


In the Mono print sub section, Noel George did extremely well taking 1st and 2nd places with "Manoeuvres" and "Old Soldiers Never Die" with Paul Anderson gaining 3rd place with "A Child of Immeasurable Poverty"

In the Colour Print sub section, Ian Chantler took 1st place with "Sunset Samba", Paul Anderson was 2nd with "Dawn Fisherman" and Lynette Ryan came 3rd with "Indian Bean Leaf".

Commiserations to all of our members who didn't catch the eye of Steve Carr on this occasion. The next competition is the annual print and digital projected images competition where all of the six monthly competitions are judged again with different judges. This always throws up some surprises. The annual competition entry form is available on the Hoylake Photographic Society website. You can also keep up to date with the club by visiting our Facebook page.

Our next Friday meeting is on 17th March with Bob Dennis visiting us to present the accepted images from the Bebington Salon. Bob always puts on a good display of photography so it's well worth attending. To view the Salon, we meet at Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane, West Kirby with the doors opening at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10pm finish.
