Celebrating Success at our Awards Evening 21 April 2008

We had a lovely celebration of a years photography yesterday evening and it was good to see so many people there to celebrate with us. My thanks go to Julie for making sure the hall looked like a restaurant with flowers and linen. To Nick for putting in the hard work on the slideshow and presentation. To Andrew for organising food and last but not least to Paul, who presented trophies, but who also made sure all those little jobs got sorted out at the beginning and end of the evening.

I was honoured to receive the Photographer of the Year Trophy for the second year running. The POTY trophy is awarded on the basis of marks received for all images over the year and though I didn’t get any firsts, I think what counted was that my twelve prints, submitted through the year, consistently scored high marks.

We weren’t all there to receive our medals and awards but those of us who were are here in this group photo. From left to right: Wendy, Ian, Darren, Paul, Robert, Clive, Nick. There were lots of other certificate winners too in the group and it was good to see people who are relatively new to photography doing well this year.  Click on an image to bring up the larger gallery view and slideshow.
