Sue Webster secured her third competition win in a row when, on 19 April, she won the Natural History Competition. Her portrait image, entitled ‘Majestic Amur Tiger’, was selected as the best of the 40 images on the night. Not only was it Sue’s third win of the year but it was also the third year in succession that she has won this award.
Alison Jenkins visited once again to judge for us on the evening. Alison indicated that she was impressed by both the breadth of subject matter and the quality of the work on show. After passing comments on each entry some were retained for a second viewing, from which Alison made her choice.
Second place in the competition went to Steve Knox for his image ‘Short Eared Owl Hunting in the Snow’. Steve waited patiently for several hours in sub-zero conditions, to record the image of the bird in flight with outstretched wings.
Tony Scialo gained third place with an image entitled ‘Red Deer Stag Looking After the Females’.
The lockdowns and other restrictions have made it a difficult year for photography, but our members proved that they can pull something out of the bag to fill an evening with great images.
The final competition of the season, the Digital Image of the Year, takes place on 24 May. The closing date for entries is 13 May.
