George Saville Trophy Competition Results.

Our most recent print competition was for a panel of prints and was very ably judged by local judge, Colin Lusby.

There was a good entry of 21 panels, each consisting of 3 mounted prints with a common theme.

The “Close Runner Up” panel was by Gary Briggs and the Winning panel was by Mike Stringer.

Well done also to all others who entered ~ there were some excellent prints under scrutiny.

The George Saville Trophy is awarded annually in memory of former member George Saville. The competition is for a panel of 3 linked images and an external judge is invited to judge the entries.

Steve Mercer awarded the trophy this year as a tribute to his late wife, Lesley, a daughter of George Saville.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
