Chelmsford Camera Club 4C's Panel Competition

On Saturday afternoon, 16th October, Chelmsford’s 4C’s Panel Competition took place in the Springfield Community Centre. Each club can enter two panels of 6 prints on any theme. Sadly, the number of clubs entering was down this year; however, the standard was very high. The judge, Clive Tanner FRPS MPAGB, was from Tonbridge, Kent, who had the unenviable task of appraising them and did an excellent job of selecting the top three plus four highly commended. (You will be able to see Clive in action next month when he pays us a visit to judge a print competition)

Ipswich retained the trophy with a very challenging set of low light nature prints by Martin Hancock. Second was another stunning set of prints of high and low key figure studies by Jane Barratt from Benfleet and in third place was our Derek Howes with “Humpback Whales Bubble-Net Feeding”. Tony Bramley achieved a Highly Commended for “Glasgow Street Art”. So congratulations go to both our members, with both our panels achieving awards out of the seven given.

– Vic Hainsworth.
