Print Exhibition


Entries are invited each year for the DI Group's Print Competition. Every entrant is guaranteed at least one acceptance into the Group's touring Members' Exhibition. Prints are selected at the Group's Annual General Meeting by a panel of three eminent photographers, who also choose the RPS Medal and Trophy winner and the six RPS Ribbon winners. Selected images are published in DIGIT. Further images can be found on the DIG section of the forum.


Our Exhibition Secretary is Marilyn Taylor ARPS

The selectors



I am a self-taught Fine Art photographer, with a special fascination for small details, for lost, abandoned, poignant and generally broken objects, and also for darkness contrasting with light, both in a physical and emotional sense.
Many of my illustrative images simply evolve as I am working on them - I start off with a quite straightforward idea of what I want to achieve but am always willing to venture wherever the photograph wants me to go, as I overlay multiple images together or add textures, scanned documents as new layers, and subtle shading. Two photographs may blend together in a way that I could not have previously imagined, and this is one of the things that I find so exciting and all-consuming when I work, to produce a final image that perhaps a little bit different, that invokes emotion in the viewer and makes them question their sense of the world as they know it.
In June 2014 I was awarded a Fellowship Distinction by the Royal Photographic Society, following on from an Associateship Distinction in June 2011 and a Licentiateship Distinction in 2010. I am Honorary Secretary of the Visual Art Group.






Paula is a committee member of Stokesley Photographic Society and is currently the External Competition Secretary. She developed and maintains their Website and recently produced and presented a series of Adobe Lightroom tutorials for club members.  A Permajet supported speaker and invited member of GAMMA Photoforum, Paula also actively participates and is a member of council in the United Photographic Postfolios of Great Britain (UPP). She developed and maintains the UPP website and is Admin for their Facebook Group.


Paula describes herself as a “butterfly photographer” because she flits from subject to subject taking a photograph of anything that attracts her.   She enjoys travelling both overseas and in the UK, getting out in the landscape or on a city break, and has visited many of the US National Parks, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.





Currently Vice President of The Society, my photographic interests are broad. I was an early member of the Digital Imaging Group, at first photographing film images on my computer monitor before working on them in Photoshop. Maureen and I were friends with Barry Thomas, the original guru and best teacher of digital imaging techniques.

I enjoy taking pictures in the visual art, documentary, landscape and applied categories.

I have been a member of the Fellowship Board and twice a selector of the RPS Members' exhibition.

 I have won awards in many AV events including the Gold Medal in the RPS National AV Championships (2009 and 2014) and Gold Medal in the European Cup (2010). I’ve judged the RPS National and International Championships and the Southern Ireland, Northern Ireland and Australian National Championships.
