Once again club member Les Forrester has received recognition for his superb photography. The print below, along with seven others, was entered into probably the hardest FIAP (International Federation of Photographic Art) salon for acceptances, the 152nd Edinburgh International Exhibition of Photography – 2014. This salon obtains around 2500 entries ( prints only) but less than 8% are accepted.
Storm Chasing – Les Forrester
This print won a RPS (Royal Photographic Society) Gold Medal, one of only three RPS medals there. Les also had another 5 prints acceptanced making it a terrific 6 out of 8 acceptances – remember only 8% of entries are accepted making Les’s 75% acceptance rate truly remarkable. Hearty congratulations to Les for this achievement.
(By the way “Storm Chasing” was accepted with a commended at the recent Cotswold Mono Salon and highly commended at the Solway Salon – both international events.)
