The annual KCPS Frank Hinchcliff Trophy has this year been won by Roger Smith for his print “Early Start Paekak”. In awarding the win on Monday 22nd July, judge Toya Heatley commented “I can almost smell the steam as it rises from the engine”.
Runner up was “All Eyes on the Sunrise” by Greg Whitfield.
Thanks to all who entered.
KCPS entries to the various 2019 PSNZ competitions did well again this year, with two 4th placings and a 10th.
The first of the 4ths was in the Bledisloe Cup, which is for a set of four diverse images all taken in New Zealand. Photos in this set were by Alison Viskovic, Jo Goudsblom, Neil Gordon, and Barry Culling.
Fourth place was also awarded in the George Chance Cup – a competition for sets of four landscape prints, one print per club member, to be submitted by member clubs of the PSNZ. Images for this set were created by Jacky Challis, Carol Molineux, Hugh Scott, and Greg Whitfield.
Finally we managed to get 10th place in the Wiltshire Memorial Cup. Submissions for this consist of a selection of four digital images, one image per club member, on any subject. These were taken by Susie Whelan, David Yockney, Hugh Scott, and Alison Viskovic.
KCPS club members achieved great success at the 2019 PSNZ Canon National Exhibition.
Alison Viskovic, Carol Molineux, Hugh Scott, Rhonda Billington, Teresa Angell, Neil Gordon, Caroline Ludford, Shona Jaray, Jacky Challis and David Yockney all had acceptances. In addition, Rhonda was awarded a Bronze Medal for her Grey Warbler image, and Carol got a Silver Medal for her Coprinellus disseminates.
Congratulations to everyone.
