The Howard Morris Trophy alternates with our other biennial competition, the Landscape Trophy.
The competition 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 Programme notes clarify that the images must be black and white “without any toning, colour popping, etc”. The subject matter is “open”.
The competition was judged this year by Micki Aston MCIoJ CPAGB. Micki is a professional travel photographer based in Gerrards Cross who started as a black and white landscape photographer. And mono remains her “first love”. She has been widely published in a variety of books and other photographic publications. And she judges both inter-club and county competitions throughout southern England, as well as lecturing extensively on her travel photography.
29 prints were entered for the competition, down on two years ago. They covered a variety of subjects including landscapes, seascapes, travel, city/architecture, street/candid, portraits, motorsport, and still life.
Micki was most impressed with the standard of entries. After her detailed critiques and her deliberations, the results were as follows.
