Competition Entries

Here are the results of the October Competition. Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all who supported the Area by entering.

Class: “Celebration”

FIRST PRIZE: Doreen Parkinson, New Earswick Flower Club.
Judge’s Comments: A well-chosen collection of items depicting the title which fills the frame well. A nice touch of humour with the paracetamol!


SECOND PRIZE: Pat Daley, Steeton Flower Club.
Judge’s Comments: A simple yet effective design to interpret the title, however there is quite a lot of foreground. Cropping is allowed.


THIRD PRIZE: Sandra Harder, Ilkley Flower Club
Judge’s Comments: A delightful table setting for a summer celebration. There is a lot going on in the background which detracts somewhat from the focus of the photograph.

Class: “Season of Mellow Fruitfulness

FIRST PRIZE: Olive Baines, the Yorkshire Flower Club
Judge’s Comments: A lovely photograph with autumn colours filling the frame.

SECOND PRIZE: Doreen Parkinson, New Earswick Flower Club
Judge’s Comments: A good interpretation of ‘Mellow Fruitfulness’. The backgrounds are rather dominant and some judicious cropping would reduce this.

Judge’s Comments: A well composed image with the footpath taking the eye around the frame.
