Congrats to our winners of aggregate score awards and Image of the Year awards.
Thank you to everyone who entered our awards this year. We look forward to seeing even more for you all in 2021.
Big thanks to the Judging Panel from Waverly Camera Club: Dave Summer, Vicki Moritz, and Michael Silverstein, who judged our Images of the Year.
Also, massive thanks to Tania Chalmers, our Competition Steward who has done a great job, as always, for us throughout this tumultuous year.
It has been five very long months since we have been able to have an outing together due to the COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions here in Victoria. Yesterday saw 31 Members and friends attend the outing at the State Rose Garden.
As we round out our year of isolation we also come to the last round of competition for the year. In this competition the images were about people. Set before the pandemic hit and long before we were all locked away in our homes, I'm sure finding images for this competition was a challenge for all; which is no doubt why we saw a reduction in our usual numbers of entries.
We are grateful to our members who have stuck with us throughout the past six rounds of competition, particularly those since we had to remove prints from contention due to social distancing rules. I remain ever-impressed with the work from our members and love that you continue to share it with us all.
Our judge for the evening was Rob Sloane. He was not present for the reading of his comments, we are grateful for his time in reviewing our images and providing his feedback.
The judging for our 5th competition "Open" & "Movement" was again held via Zoom. There was a time we thought we'd be back in our club rooms by now, COVID-19… it just keep coming at us. We are grateful to our members who continue to stick with us during this time and enjoy seeing your work.
Our judge, Paul Robinson sent us written commentary ahead of time and Paul's words were delivered by Tania. Paul was a very generous judge, offering extensive critique and citing relevant references for other photographers our makers may choose to investigate.
