Images of the Year

Image of the year was judged by a panel of judges from the Knox Camera Club. We were told that while Rob Sloane and Ron Cork were on hand to present the panel's results there were actually six people who judged our images. Three for the print and three for the digital.

The panel found our images to be of a high standard and encouraged our members to continue entering competitions within the club and externally. In addition to the four images of the year, the panel also provided commentary on other images they found to be exceptional, awarding them a "runner-up" status, though we have no formal award for this place we are certain the makers of these images were thrilled to be selected from the array of entries to receive praise for their work.

A Grade Inductees

Congrats to the following members. The quality of your work is exceptional and you have all qualified for promotion to the A Grade competition. We're excited to see you continue making great images.

  • Christine Dennis
  • Leo Loque
  • Robert Moyses
  • Viet Tran

Below is the presentation from last night thrown together into a movie.

Note: We have edited this article, the video above, and the results. Previously we had the B Grade Digital Aggregate showing the results being 1st Viet Tran, 2nd Robert Moyses, 3rd Leo Loque, however, we have determined that an error occurred that saw one of Leo's first place entries not being counted which changes the results. Leo's score has been adjusted to 48 points and first place.

Upcoming

Judging: 6th Competition: Open & Set Subject: People Portraits

Portraits are one of those subjects that everyone wants to do more of, but finding subjects to sit for us can be difficult, but we challenged our members to do exactly that for our 6th competition's set subject. How did they go?

Presentation: Selby Markham: Cameraless Photography

Mr Markham will be taking us on an exploration of using photographic media to create photographs without a camera. The techniques used may surprise you... if you have done darkroom work before, some of it may be familiar. Come along and see what can be done with light, without the typical instrument we use to capture it.
