There were thirteen entries judged by Trevor Gellard FRPS. The winners were 1, Janice Payne, Venice behind the Veil. Trevor stated that the subtle colours gave an atmospheric and stunning panel. 2, Terry Maskell, Opera House. A creative panel of sections of the Opera House with a good understanding of graphic photography. 3, Janet Monk, Afterlife. A dramatic panel, great presentation and powerful with black mounts. Highly Commended: Roy Morris, Love Supreme Jazz Festival. This panel had drama and feeling of the occasion and has captured movement with excellent colour saturation. Pat Broad, People. An extremely well presented panel taken in different areas of people engaged in daily life and various activities. Trevor said that the quality of pictures and range of subjects were brilliant but had made it difficult for him to pick winners. The chairman thanked members for such fantastic entries and Trevor for judging, appreciating how difficult it was to judge panels especially when all were of such a high standard.
