We were delighted to start this evening’s meeting with the handing over of a cheque for just over €1120 to Maeve Hurley from the Rainbow Club in Mahon, Cork. The Rainbow Club were the recipients of the monies raised at our Annual Fundraising Exhibition held at the Celtic Ross Hotel.
Following on from the success of the lighting workshops with Tadg, members were asked to submit a portrait, mono or colour, for this competition.
Although the number of entries turned out to be disappointingly small the standard showed that all had learnt from Tadg’s sessions.
Congratulations to Geoff for yet another successful entry and many thanks to Joe and Tom for standing in and judging at short notice.
First up, congratulations to the winners of our landscape competition; Patricia Costello, Grade1; Joe Dolan, Grade 3 and many thanks to Charlie Lee for judging the competition and giving such excellent feedback and encouragement.
Members were asked to submit a colour and a mono image however only one award was made at each grade level. There were a good number of entries so many thanks to all.
Last Wednesday’s meeting saw members enter photos into an intra-club Open Competition. Both colour & mono images were entered. There were a good number of entries and the competition was fierce.
Thanks to Nicholas and Anne for tallying the results and for Mel for leading the discussion on the images entered.
There were winning colour and mono images in each grade and then an overall winner in each grade.
