October Transportation projected competition

As the nights began to draw in, we held our Transportation projected image competition.

First place went to Ian Mateer’s striking image of a WW2 Bedford lorry.

Ian also came second with his image from the Ravenglass and Eskdale heritage railway which really captures a sense of movement.

Third place went to David Barnett’s serene image from safari in the Masai Mara.

July’s Street Art projected competition

It was the battle of the D’s in July’s ‘Street Art’ projected image competition.

First place went to Derek Vintin’s image of a painted interior.

Dave McLeavy’s image of a brightly decorated public toilet came second.

Third place was shared by a Banksy-like empty building by Don Jacklin and Darren Worthy’s image of artwork on a pillar in Queen’s Park, Chesterfield.

May’s Creative Shapes projected competition

May’s ‘Creative Shapes’ projected competition was a close run thing, with two images sharing third place and three images sharing third!

First place was shared by Darren Worthy’s rotated image of the Bull Ring in Birmingham and Tony Godwin’s shot of metal pipes.

Third place was taken by Allyson Evans’ triptych of smoke photography, David Barnett’s well spotted seating arrangement outside a cafe and Darren Worthy’s smoke photography using colour to identify human shapes.

April ‘Images of People’ monochrome print competition

Our first print competition since the Covid pandemic began was the annual Images of People competition. 

First place in the monochrome competition went to Nick Wheat’s image of reenactors dressed as police officers.

Dave McLeavy’s image of Farmer George came second.

Third place was shared by Allyson Evans’s image of Paula and David Barnett’s image from Sri Lanka.

March Looking Down competition

Last month’s ‘Close Up’ competition was followed by March’s ‘Looking Down’ theme.

First place went to Ian Mateer’s image of a climber on the via ferrata route Ski Club 18 in the mountains above Cortina.

Pam Fisher’s monochrome photo of Singapore came second.

Third place was shared by David Barnett’s contemplative visitor at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and Nick Wheat’s image of curious animals meeting one another.

We look forward to April’s competition as our first print competition in many months.
