“Panels” the Second PDI Competition 2021/2022: a report by Robin Johnson

Date Published 
Wed 26 Jan 2022

Our latest competition gave members the challenge of producing a ‘panel’ of five images based on any chosen topic. The entries were varied and portrayed members’ wide interests in subject matter and demonstrated all aspects of their photographic skills. 

In a photographic ‘panel’ competition, not only do the images have to be excellent individually, but they also must relate to one another and to be arranged (as a panel) in an interesting and attractive way

The judge for the evening was Andy Swain who has visited the club previously; he was very thorough and viewed both the individual images and the overall effect of the chosen panel before giving awards. The evening gave members the opportunity to view the range of images as well as to receive useful tips detailing how to plan and improve a panel of chosen photographs.

The results of the evening’s entries were:

Gold - Val Walker – ‘Paper Abstracts’

Silver – Mick Walker – ‘Bird relationships’

Bronze – Paul Richards – ‘Banded Demoiselles’

Highly Commended - Liz Akers- ‘Summer Insects’ 
Lizzie Wallis- ‘Gannet Bonding’

Commended - Grace Glaister – ‘Windows into the Past’
Judith Wells – ‘Gannets’

North Norfolk Photographic Society meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at Cley Village Hall. Information about the Club and of the programme of meetings can be found on the website www.nnps.uk.
