2020 Projected Image Exhibition No.2 Results

The results of our second Projected Image Exhibition for 2020 were announced at the club meeting this week. For the first time, we used Zoom at a club meeting, so that one of our judges was able to present her comments ‘in person’, and it seemed to work really well. Watch this space for more Zoom visitors at meetings!

Congratulations to Stephanie Forrester APSNZ for her Champion Open Image Out of the Fog and to Simon Parsons for his Champion Natural History Image Albatross 1, and well done to everyone who had images accepted.

Thank you very much to our judges, Nicki Mora LPSNZ for the Natural History section, and Cushla Moorhead for the Open. We really appreciate the time they put into judging for us, and their thoughtful commentary.

The results are available here as a PDF and below in the two slideshows.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from professional work and judging.  All categories require a physical print submission, there are no projected image categories.
