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 October 2018 the Alice Black has been awarded to Graham Burstow for his print “Autumn Morn”.  This image was entered in the Salon Grade Mono Set Subject: “Garden City” Print section.

Our judge, Margaret O’Grady commented “Wonderful story of the garden city … simple and powerful.  The shafts of light add a diagonal pattern that work to bring the eye to the child.  Very effective use of light and shadow.”
