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.

Now that things are looking a bit more normal back at Level 1, here are the plans for this month. As before, if we need to go back to Level 2, all face-to-face meetings will be postponed or moved to Zoom when possible. Hopefully there should be something here for everyone!
