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.
The Intermediate Photographer of the Year is Viviane Rosa. Viviane, a Brazilian native, who has made Athy her home joined the club within the last year. She has brought wonderful enthusiasm and sense of fun to proceedings. It was great to see her falir and photographic skills acknowledged with the title.
The overall Photographer of the Year and the winner of the Jack Brogan Perpetual Memorial Trophy, was none other than our chairman Peadar Doogue. This is Peadar’s second occasion to win the award and it was richly deserved. The members of Athy PS extend their heartiest congratulations to both winners.
