The Blandford Forum Camera Club Annual Exhibition for 2018 was held in the Corn Exchange, Blandford Forum on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May. Sue Sibley ARPS, EFIAP, DPAGB, BPE2* was invited from Southampton and New Forest clubs to judge our exhibition which took place in the Blandford Camera clubhouse in 14thApril 2018.
This year it is Blandford Forum Camera club’s 62ndAnnual Exhibition and the quality and entrants are as strong as ever, although there have been many changes in the photography world. The main one being digital and mobile phone cameras, the quality and creativeness that can be obtained from these cameras today is amazing; the enthusiasm remains the same, we are all looking for that special image.
The certificates and cups were awarded to the winners on Sunday 27th May at the exhibition by our judge for the exhibition Sue Sibley and we would like to thank her for a job well done.
We were also pleased that the recently elected Mayor Cllr. Roger Carter came along to what was his first official engagement of his office to view the exhibition with his wife Heather as consort.
As always visitors were asked to vote for their favourite print from the club prints on show, whether in colour or monochrome. The votes were counted before the presentation and the print voted the visitor’s favourite this year was by Colin Cross called “Harvest Mouse” to which he was awarded the Esme Butler cup for the BFCC 2018 Exhibition, well done to him.
Esme’s husband Dave was kind enough to present the cup to Colin and he also read a poem about photography, we thank Dave for taking the time to come along.
