Millennium Trophy 2018-19

Our annual Millennium Trophy competition took place on Wednesday 16th January and was judged by club member John Williams MPSA EFIAP/b DPAGB.  The Trophy is open to all club members – there are no leagues and beginners are judged alongside more experienced photographers.  This year’s competition was a PDI with a set theme of ‘an image to advertise a timepiece, footwear or a drink’

It was rather disappointing to see a fairly small number of entries, however the images on display showed skill and creativity and John narrowed the selection down to the top six.

In joint 3rd place were:

Kath Brown with ‘Rock the Luxury in Blue Suede’
Jo Knight with ‘Red or Dead’ and
Karen McLellan with ‘Almond Milk’

 


In joint 2nd place were:

Jo Knight with ‘WKD Berry’ and
Mike Hughes with ‘Time After Time’

 

 

And alongside his 2nd place was a 1st place for Mike Hughes with ‘Fre’ Girders’ – many congratulations to our winner!

PAGB Masters of Print 2018

The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) hold an annual, nationwide photographic competition called Masters of Print.  The competition is open to individual photographers who enter under their own steam, though they must be affiliated to a Club which is a member of the PAGB.  The purpose of the competition is to find photographic prints of the highest quality for a prestigious Print Exhibition, celebrating the best of PAGB Photography for the Year.

Our congratulations go to Jo Knight for being one of only 60 photographers accepted into the Masters of Print 2018.  The Exhibition of accepted works will take place in the RK Burt Gallery in London’s Southbank from Tuesday 4th December to Friday 14th December, with the official opening ceremony on Friday 7th December, though other dates and venues around the country are under discussion for those who can’t get to the Capital.

Unlike many other competitions which are often won by the same photographers with the same images used over and over again, the Masters of Print seeks out new and emerging talent and works which haven’t previously been shown.  Only one image per photographer is allowed to be selected for the Exhibition.  This gives all Club photographers an equal chance of success, so is well worth an entry!
