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.

Greg Whitfield was the winner of both Print and Digital categories for the Intermediate grade, with David Yockney runner up in Digital and Alison Fraei runner up in Print.
Advanced Digital winner was Susie Whelan. Runner up Carol Molineux.
Gavin Klee took the Advanced Print trophy, closely followed by Susie.
This year’s Frank Hinchcliff award was won by Carol Molineux, the second time for her in recent years.
The Best of Year competition was judged by Ann Bastion. Barry Culling won the print category with his fantastically detailed Bellbird. Unusually we had joint runners-up with Ann not being able to choose between Gavin Klee and Johanna Gouldsblom.
Finally Gavin Klee rounded off a successful evening for him by taking the Best of Year Digital trophy, with Carol Molineux a close second.
A big thanks to Nicola McGinty for taking photos on the night – a pretty pressurised job in a roomful of photographers! The full gallery of photos from the night can be seen over on the KCPS Facebook page here.
Finally a huge thanks on behalf of the committee and the members to Alison for all her hard work over the year.
