On Wednesday 30 th November 2022, Dunchurch Photographic
Society held their annual Open Subject Monochrome Print
competition at the WI Hall on Southam Road, Dunchurch. This time,
our members were playing for the highly cherished John Hughes
A strong entry from across the membership resulted in no
less than 45 monochrome print entries, with each participating
member being permitted to enter up to three prints for this event.
The judge for the evening was Robert Ings, who made a welcome
return to the competitive arena (!!) in Dunchurch, and the usual
diverse range of subjects was on display throughout the evening as the
competition ensued. Once more, the DPS members made it a difficult
decision for the judge to pick out what he deemed to be the successful
images within this year’s competition. Don’t ever change Dunchurch
– it is to your credit that our modest village society can create such an
array of beautiful work.
As always, in my role as the current serving Chairman of the Society,
I thank all of the members who took part in this fascinating and
closely fought competition. And naturally, I would like to give our
collective thanks to Robert Ings for his valuable and insightful
critique of our images.
Many congratulations to Michael Bryan, who won this competition
for the first time with a story-telling action shot titled, ‘The Last
Of course, well done to all of our members who experienced success
in the competition with images that were commended, highly
commended or finishing 3 rd or 2 nd place. A fantastic evening, and yet
another wonderful review of the standard of photography achieved by
Dunchurch Photographic Society members.
