Theme competition

Report by Marjorie Burge

An amazing evening of photography on Friday 6th March when Jack Taylor DPAGB EFIAP of Seaford & Hailsham Camera Clubs, and a former member of Eastbourne Camera Club, was our chosen judge for the Projected Digital Image Theme Trophy competition. There were winning qualities in every one of the entries and our judge said they were ‘excellent work’. Jack viewed the images initially separately and then as a complete collection, emphasising that a theme is not the same as a panel – ‘it all depends on how they hang together as images’ – and where he felt that an image strayed from this rule, explained his reasons with care. He was full of praise for our photographers. Jack held seven themes back and was apologetic that he had to eliminate some powerful images in order to make his final choice. It was a good evening at APS, our photographers presented some amazing work, and Jack was absolutely the right judge for this competition.

Martin Till was the overall winner of the PDI Trophy with ‘On the Backstreets of Venice’

Graeme Andrews took second place with ‘Emergence

Nicholas Hill came third with ’Noir’

Looking through the handbook I see that this is two years in a row for Martin Till. Congratulations.
