Results of the 4th Clubman Competition
Wakefield Camera Club extended a very warm welcome to Harry Kingman, the judge for the 4th Clubman competition of 2014. The subject for the 4th Clubman was ‘Open’ meaning anything goes and the members really took this as a serious challenge. Images covered and even uncovered just about every topic imaginable from People in Portraits, Boats in Harbours and Birds on Branches through to Stars in the Sky, Landscapes, Bridges, Spirals, Flowers, Patterns and the Sea.
Some of the images were described as imaginative or immaculate whilst some were strong and others even took the viewer on a voyage. Whatever the subject chosen every image received positive, thoughtful and constructive feedback from the judge which made for a very entertaining and enjoyable evening. Harry Kingman is the Chairman of Kerbymoorside & District Camera Club who are currently holding their annual exhibition in the Old Library in Helmsley until Sunday 29th June – details can be found on their website if you wish to visit.
The quality of the images submitted was excellent in the both print and digital sections so in addition to awarding a 1st, 2nd & 3rd in each section Harry also gave four Highly Commended and four Commended. Congratulations to every one who entered but a special mention must go to David Kershaw for achieving 1st place in both competitions.
