Alan Townsend Memorial Trophy Competition
Our annual competition trophy, named in honour of our late leader, was presented for the second time on 17th January 2020. The winner of the competition for 2019 was John Turner. The winning set of 3 photos is shown here.
The event was judged by Mr. John Whaler, a qualified circuit judge, member of Lincoln RB Photographic Club and still a darkroom as well as digital worker.
All elements of all images submitted must be the work of the author
All images to be prints, no larger than A4. NB No dimension to be larger than the longest side of A4.
All prints must be mounted. The mount will not be judged and images fixed to the surface of a mount board will be accepted
Images will be considered individually on their merits. No account will be taken of the relationship of the images to each other - i.e. it is a portfolio and not a panel of 3
The winner will be the person who, in the opinion of the judge, demonstrates the greatest overall ability
All images submitted should have been taken during the competition year. The competition is for work from this year only. The next competition will be for 2020 images.
Each person may enter only one portfolio of three images
An entry consists of a portfolio of three images and is open, not tied to any given topic. These must all be of a different genre e.g. a portrait, landscape and architecture.
NB Landscape includes all 'scapes' i.e. seascape, skyscape, cityscape etc. Technique e.g. colour / mono / long exposure / macro is not a genre. The subject matter rather than the technique used to capture it is the genre so e.g. a long exposure landscape is still a landscape.
Images should be brought on the day and handed in on arrival
No marking is permitted on the front of any image. They will be judged anonymously.
The title of each image should be written on the reverse together with the member's number, but not their name. NB Your number is on the signing in sheet.
