End of season awards night

Ashford Photographic Society

On Friday 25th May, APS members, friends and family celebrated a wonderful year of photography, lectures, outings and competitions by gathering together at Givaudan to wine and dine together. Our special guests for the evening were Annie and Clive Tanner FRPS MPAGB APAGB. Clive, who has a passion for church interiors, had brought along some of his outdoor panels, and talked of the pleasure he found in putting them together, reminding us that pleasing ourselves was occasionally more important than pleasing the judges. Awards for those achieving top places in our League and Trophy competitions were handed out at the end of the evening by Clive and Chris Shore, our Competition Secretary, and will be on our website soon.

It was a lovely evening of celebration and friendship, bringing our season to an end. A sigh of relief that the pressure is off for a while, but APS members will be out with their cameras during the summer break trying to find that special image, that something different, and, yes, trying to please themselves but always keeping those judges in mind.

We start again in early September, and will meet every Friday at Givaudan Sports and Social Club, Kennington Road, Ashford TN24 0LT starting at 7.30, with coffee and bar facilities. New members and visitors always welcome. APS is a very friendly club with photographers of all levels; tuition is given at workshops for members and on club outings members can team up to gain experience. Keep up to date at or telephone our secretary Katrina Devenport on 01303 814842 if you have any questions.
