On Wednesday 8th May 2019 members contested the Howard Morris Memorial Trophy.

This is a biennial competition for monochrome prints established in memory of former club member Howard Morris, alternating with our other biennial competition, the Landscape Trophy. It is open to all club members (with no sections) who may submit two prints that have not previously been entered in any league competition.

The competition was judged this year by Jonathan Vaines LRPS CPAGB (from Cambridge Camera Club).

The Programme notes clarify that the prints must be black and white “without any toning, colour popping, etc”.

There are NO Section 1 or Section 2 categories in this competition. All members compete equally against each other. Judging for the Howard Morris Memorial Trophy does not award individual scores to images. Instead the top images are awarded First, Second, Third, with images awarded ‘Highly Commended’ and ‘Commended’ at the judge’s discretion.
