The selectors:

 

Margaret joined her first club Kingswood Photographic Society in the seventies. From taking mainly slides, she moved to Cibachrome printing and also enjoyed  derivative techniques in black and white. Margaret joined the Western Counties Photographic Federation executive about 1984 serving as exhibition secretary, eventually becoming WCPF  President and their representative on the Photographic Alliance. She went on to serve as President of the PAGB.

During this time she joined Images sans Frontieres and met many fellow photographers from Europe. Through these contacts she was invited to join the Fiap Directory Board. It was at this time travel and people photography became new aspects of photography to enjoy. Until then a love of landscapes had been her main interest in photography.  For some time all her work is produced digitally.

John Tilsley ARPS DPAGB APAGB

 

John was hooked on photography after being given the family’s Box Brownie at the age of 10! He soon progressed to 35 mm and, having acquired his uncle’s enlarger in his early twenties, quickly became a prolific darkroom printer. Much influenced by Tim Rudman and others, he latterly worked creatively using alternative processes. Finally converting to digital in 2010, he has embraced the power of Photoshop and the ease of producing colour & monochrome prints.  As a photographer he will try anything but has a definite love of landscape and photographs with people in them.
Although he has a background in Club Photography, 36 years on the committee at Dorchester and 14 years on the executive of the WCPF, he has for 20 years been a member of the Dorset Independent Photographers. This is a small group of photographers who work together to improve their photography and exhibit their work annually. Sponsored by Fotospeed, he lectures regularly throughout the South of England and Wales on a wide range of subjects.
John is a hugely experienced judge, who is still Chairman of the WCPF Judging Panel, having run Judging Seminars for the Federation since 2004. He has been involved in the selection of images for competitions and exhibitions at all levels since 2000.
 

 

 

   

Martin Addison FRPS

  Photography has played an important part in my life ever since I was a teenager and I have been an active member of the Worcestershire Camera Club for over 40 years. I run the WCC Digital Imaging group and organise monthly meetings, practical workshops and photographic trips to various locations throughout the UK.

I enjoy sharing my photographs and also helping other photographers through lecturing in Prints, Projected Images and Audio-Visual. I also run workshops on Adobe Lightroom for Permajet and Wild Photography Holidays. My fourth book 'Painter 12 for Photographers' was published in 2011 by Focal Press.

Most of all I enjoy taking photographs. My inspiration comes from the world around me and I particularly enjoy creating pictures that intrigue. In the camera I often use multiple exposures to add texture, and camera movement to create impressions rather than reality. I am currently a panel member for the RPS Licentiateship awards.

Outside of photography I have a great love of music (listening to music - I cannot play it!) I enjoy a wide range from Classical to Blues, Indian to Rock, but my especial love is Opera which I watch and listen to on a regular basis.

Projected Image Competition Trophy

 

The 'Raymond Wallace Thompson Trophy' for the DI Group's annual Projected Image Competition

Raymond Wallace ThompsonRaymond Wallace Thompson ARPS was a long-time member of the RPS and of the Digital Imaging Group.  His photographic skills brought him recognition and awards from the UK and the USA and beyond. When he died on 20 October 2010, aged 93 years, he kindly left a legacy to the Group. The DIG Committee of the time decided that a fitting way to use this was to commission a trophy for the Group's annual Digital Projected Image Competition.      

The Trophy was presented for the first time for the 2011 competition.
The elegant solid glass etched trophy was designed and made for the Group by Steven le Prevost FRPS.  It bears the words 'In memory of Raymond Wallace Thompson ARPS' above the DI Group logo.  The glass stands on an elegant wooden base on which is a plaque engraved with the RPS crest, as well as the winners' names year on year.

  • 2016: Adrian Lines ARPS
  • 2015: Adrian Lines ARPS
  • 2014: Peter Clark FRPS EFIAP/p APSA MPSA

Ensuring your images have the right profile.

When images are submitted for the Projected Image Competition it is necessary for entrants to convert or embed the correct profile in their images. This is to ensure that the images are viewed in the best possible manner and are reproduced in the catalogue that will be produced, correctly.

Rex Waygood has produced a short document explaining how this is achieved in Phtoshop CC. Click HERE for details.
