However this year’s competition stands as a measure of how the club continues to develop and grow. The number and standard of the entries this year exceeded all expectations with over 30 entries covering a huge variety of subject matter and techniques.
The interest in the contest was also evidenced by the number of members who attended the evening, including ALGARNI Rahaf as a potential new member.
Each member was invited to submit up to 3 images, not exceeding A4 in size of any subject they chose.
Tonight these included portraiture, still life studies, architecture, land and seascapes, wildlife, macro and nature.
The entries were submitted anonymously and laid out to view, the only identifying feature being a number randomly allocated to each image.
Members present were that given score cards to indicate their favourite 5 images giving the one to five points.
One judging was over, it only remained to tot up the scores which couldn’t have been closer with just one point separating the top three.
Third with 31 points was Joe Sheridan’s portrait of a printer at work at Beamish Museum.
All in all, a great night for everyone there and for West Moor Camera Club.
