15th February – Small Prints Competition No. 2
Small Prints Competition No. 2
Tonight’s meeting is the second of the Small Print competitions this year. The competition included sections for both Beginners and Advanced Photographers.
This competition is a fairly low key affair compared to the monthly Open Competitions but nevertheless, the event is well attended and taken very seriously. How many times have we all huffed and puffed at the remarks made by competition judges when critiquing our images. Well, this small event gives all the members an opportunity to judge each other’s work: and from experience it is not easy.
Each member has to select the best 5 images from each section. As the title of the competition suggests - all entries are prints, surface mounted on a board with no print being larger than A4 in size. This allows any member who would not normally submit prints an opportunity to submit images in this medium as no special equipment is needed. Any standard colour printer would be able to produce the prints needed. The artistic standard was indeed very high across both sections and it was plain to see a lot of members were struggling in making their top five selections.
Once the judging had been completed and the tallies counted the results were in.
Congratulations to all the winners and runners up and a thank you to all the members taking part.
