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 May 2019 the Alice Black has been awarded to Iris Castle for her image “The Star”. This image was entered in the B Grade Digital Colour Set Subject section – “Bokeh”.
Our judge, Gerard Saide provided the following comments “A perfect bokeh background. Lighting is beautiful. A less central placement of the bird might be more effective but not always so.”
