The eagerly-awaited Image of the Year competition for Dawlish & Teignmouth Camera Club was ably judged by Kay Wilson – an Australian by birth, but now living in Saltash.

Kay had the difficult task of reviewing both printed photos and projected digital images covering a diverse range of subject matter, from wildlife close-ups to stunning landscapes and from well-timed street photography to creative surreal images. She proved her mettle as a judge by being able to provide thoughtful feedback on each image and also gave many helpful comments for improvements.

There was particular delight when two of the Club members achieved their first Gold awards; Denise Searle’s tranquil image of boats in Halon Bay and Barbara’s playful colour-popping image of the umbrella installation in Exeter.

Winners for the Monochrome Prints:

  • Gold – Denise Searle

  • Silver – Ken Holland

  • Bronze – Tony Wilson

Winners for the Coloured Prints:

  • Gold – Barbara Ferrity, Bob Normand, Bob Kethro, Ken Holland

  • Silver – Nigel West, Tony Wilson, Ernie King, Kevin McDonagh

  • Bronze – Jackie Ridley, Howard Sheard

Winners for the Digital Images:

  • Gold – Dave Hutton, Barry Holmes, Ken Holland

  • Silver – Gwynneth Chubb, Tony Wilson, Edward Chorlton, Kevin McDonagh, Peter Sillifant

  • Bronze – Denise Searle, Gwynneth Chubb

Programme Secretary, Barry Holmes, thanked Kay for all her work in judging the competition and explained how her thoughtful critique had also provided a workshop for members.
