Tonight, (19th April), the penultimate night in the clubs season, we joined together at the ‘Bennie’ to socialise and present awards & certificates to those members who were successful in club competitions and to announce our club champions in both PDI & Print along with our overall champion and winner of ‘Photographer of the Year’
The ‘Chris Crane Cup’ award was presented to Lauren Clayton for her winning image ’Winterland’. Lauren was also awarded ‘PDI Photographer of the Year’
Jim Meikle was awarded ‘Colour Print Photographer of the Year’ as well as ‘Mono Print Photographer of the year’ and had the accolade of being announced as ‘Overall Photographer of the Year’. Very well done to both Lauren & Jim and well done to all those members who received certificates for either winning or being placed in club competitions.
The evening was well attended with a nice buffet and a picture quiz provided by Colin Livingstone.
A raffle with donated prizes from members raised £90. Many thanks to all who contributed.
A special thanks to Kathleen Hodgson for very kindly donating a tripod & reflector for the raffle, belonging to he late husband Ted, a sadly missed club member who was a stalwart of the club for many years and good friend to many members. I’m sure Ted would be pleased that these items found a good home and stayed within the club.
Below are some images taken of prizes & certificates being awarded.
