Potters Bar and District Photographic Society has presented trophies for achievements last year.
The society had a total of 14 trophies to award across a range of year-long and one-off competitions, and Fiona Adamson won six of them.
This included the Advanced Class ‘Print of the Year’ and ‘Projected Image of the year’.
The two pictures were independently judged as the best from the hundreds entered during the year.
Keeping the winners in the family was Marion Dale, Fiona’s mother who won three trophies including those for the best cumulative score across all five rounds of the year-long competition in both print and projected image disciplines in the General Class, thereby qualifying to compete in the Advanced Class in 2018.
Fiona said: “I am obviously very happy to receive such recognition for the pictures but am sure that fellow members will not let me rest on laurels next year.”
Marion added: “I have been in the society for a while now and it is a good feeling to finally make it into the Advanced Class”.
The best individual print and projected image for the General Class were both taken by Dave Merrill.
Dave has only been a member of the society for a short time and put his success down to “beginner’s luck” but the external judges obviously thought it was more down to photographic ability.
Other winners were Sally Oliver (Best General Class print at Annual Exhibition at The Galleria in Hatfield) and Graham Coldrick (Advanced Class print championship and for receiving the highest public vote at the Annual Exhibition).
2018 sees the society commence its 70th anniversary year with a programme of competitions, presentations and visits offering a varied line-up of events for photographers at all levels of experience and with exhibitions in the local area throughout the year.
The society meets for the first time in 2018 on Monday, January 8, at Wyllyotts Centre from 7.30pm.
