Clive Tanner FRPS DPAGB was our judge on Friday 1st May for The Driftwood Trophy Print Panel Competition (donated by Chris Shore). Clive is a member of Maidstone Camera Club, a KCPA judge, a member of the KCPA Judges Panel, and an ex-President of the KCPA. Panels can consist of four to six prints linked by content or technique and there were 14 panels entered. Clive looked for a sense of uniformity, all images being of an equal standard. With panels, the order of presentation is important so that there is, in theory, one overall picture/story. Clive commented carefully and thoroughly on all images, and commended the members of APS for the quality of their photography, printing and presentation. When choosing the winners he said he was sorry to lose some of the panels but could only pick three – all the panels entered were good, some outstanding. It was, he said, a mark of Ashford Photographic Society that we could produce such wonderful work.
George Pearson DPAGB was the winner of The Driftwood Trophy with Religious Devotion, 2nd Stephen Cheek with Cheetah Family and 3rd Helen Taylor ARPS DPAGB BPE3* with Not Just Jugs.
