Alice Black Award – June 2019 – “Time to cook dinner” by Mattea Taylor

To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.

At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given.  All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.

For June 2019 the Alice Black has been awarded to Mattea Taylor for her image “Time to cook dinner”.  This image was entered in the A Grade Digital Colour Set Subject section – “Still Life”.

Our judge, Graham Harris provided the following comments “This image had exceptionally high impact for me – you have taken the “Still Life” set subject and put a very original spin on it. The composition works brilliantly and there is a complete story here.”

All, 

I’d like to inform you that another of our extremely talented photographers has been awarded a Licentiate Honour with the Australian Photographic Society. 

Congratulations to Mick Jones LAPS!

 

I would like others to consider a portfolio entry next February. It is not a given, nor is it simple…or free to enter, but we will continue to support all who would like to try. 

 

We are making big noises in the photographic community, let’s keep it up!
