Club members will no doubt remember that each year the Club participates in an international competition against clubs from the US, Australia and South Africa. Last year we were without a club participating from the US. This year we were joined by the Charlotte Camera Club from Charlotte, North Carolina. The South African club is the Creative Camera Club from Cape Town. The Australian club is from Albany in Western Australia. Each club submits 30 images and this year they were judged independently by a panel of 3 judges.
We were not the winners this year; the laurels went to Charlotte Camera Club. However, we were runners up, so we should be proud of that. However, some of our individual images did very well with honours for the best image of the entire competition going to Carla Bryan's - The Stare. Very well done Carla.
Also to be congratulated for highly commended mentions are:
Gone Fishing - Carlo Bragagnolo
Red Dragon - Stuart Chapman
Over the Sea to Skye - Russell McGowan
Male Orange Tip - Tony Mathews
There were some excellent images entered by all the clubs for this year's competition and you will be able to view them all by viewing and downloading the THE WAUSSAUK INTERCONTINENTAL PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION Final.pdf
My thanks to our selectors: Julie McGowan, Stuart Chapman, Sharron Godfrey and Dave Smithson. Particular thanks to our DPI Comp Sec Dave Smithson for making it all happen.
