PSNZ Central Regional Convention – Whanganui

Nine club members enjoyed a fun and interesting convention in Whanganui last weekend, hosted by the Whanganui Camera Club.  A highlight was the salon, where the club and individual members did very well.

Our interclub sets won in both print and digital, and Nicola McGinty won the Stratford Cup for her portrait “Behind the Mask”, judged best print from all the interclub print entries.

Here’s our president, Alison Viskovic after Vonnie Cave presented her with the Palmerston Cup for prints and the Wanganui Cup for digital.
