Trophies Decided

The 2023 Natural History Trophy Competition and the winner of the Open PDI Competition were both decided on Monday.

Having very come close on previous occasions this year Steve Knox won the Natural History award. Steve had a strong entry overall. He secured the prize with a great image of a tiny Wren, in its environment. At the end of the evening our judge, Dr Paul Hendley, was left weighing the merits of two competing images. He need not have worried as both belonged to Steve. Paul Hendley praised the standard of Edmonton’s images stating that he found judging them to be a challenging but highly enjoyable task.

Marion Rapier scored well on the night to secure the Open PDI Competition once again. Paul Hendley praised her image of a two-man canoe team tackling a white-water course, awarding it a maximum score. Paul Hendley once again complimented the Club on the quality and diversity of images that he encountered in the Open Competition. The overall top places, following five keenly fought rounds, were as follows:

1st – Marion Rapier with 153 points.
2nd – Derek Webster with 149 points.
3rd – Tony Scialo with 148 points.
