Diploma Awards for 2019

Congratulations to Darren Thompson, Stuart Chapman and Dave Collerton for their recent successes in the Club Diploma section for 2019. Darren created 10 very different images which showed his depth and understanding of photography despite his relative newness to the art form. Stuart chose to focus on the water and in particular, the movement of water. His 15 images captured a variety of situations including some wonderful close ups of cascading water and a number of very enigmatic images of our coastline. Dave by contrast chose to show the very different nature of the TQ2 postcode by highlighting both wealth and poverty in the region through a single body of work.

Where available, you can find the images associated with the individuals diploma entries in the Members Gallery section of this website.

So a very happy Christmas and healthy New Year to all.

Very well done also to Russell McGowan for gaining a Silver medal at the Masters of Print.  Russell travelled to Birmingham to receive his award.

We have Tony Worobiec on the 6 January, very worth while seeing, plus it is the last day for entries into the AV's/Multimedia for the Mason Trophy and also the Chairman's Challenge which this year has the theme of A Closer Look

Angie Cotitis writes - Well done to everyone who was placed and all who entered in this years Sleep Trophy, especially Julia who managed to have all three entries placed.  John Baker was a very good judge who manged to compliment and critique all the images in a very positive and kind way. For anyone who is a member of the National Trust, there may be good photo opportunities at some of the local places like Colleton Fishacre, Killerton and Saltram.  The gardens and interiors are decorated for the Christmas period.
