On Wednesday night, November 27th, we held our Photographer of the Year competition. In keeping with the format of last year each member submits a panel of 6 images. They are put on display.

We were honoured to have the renowned international award winning Podge Kelly to act as judge. Podge examined each and every image in detail and provided wonderful feedback. His advice and recommendations were gratefully accepted by the participants. It was a wonderful night of camaraderie and friendly atmosphere. There were two categories and the am delighted to report that Podge Kelly chose two very popular winners.
