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 August 2017 the Alice Black has been awarded to Katrina Lynn for her image “My Ray of Sunshine”. This image was entered in the B Grade Set Subject “Joy of Life”. The judge commented that this was a nice , bright, happy image – a good fit for Joy of Life. The expression on the young boys face, together with the great balance of bright colours from the orange top he is wearing, the yellow play equipment and the autumn colours make this a very worthy winner of this month’s Alice Black.
