Entering national competitions and international photography Salons is a great way to showcase your work and if any of your photos are accepted into a Salon exhibition this counts towards the criteria needed for international distinctions. It’s achievement enough to have your work selected from the thousands of entries from all corners of the globe, but a real honour to receive a medal or award and I’m delighted to share the success of two of our Club members in national & international competitions.
Chris Bate gained a Highly Commended for his sequence ‘The Essential Link’, entered in the L&CPU AV competition on the 9th February.
Mike Hughes received a Photographic Society of America gold medal for his picture ‘Steam Cycle’ in a Salon held in Serbia, and the same image was also awarded an IAAP bronze medal.
His ‘Choirboy’ image was awarded a PSA blue ribbon in the same competition.
Our congratulations to both members! For more information on Salons, and Salon distinctions, visit the competitions section of our website.
