Meeting Report – 16th November 2022 Open Subject – Panel Of Three Prints Competition

On Wednesday 16th November 2022, Dunchurch Photographic Society were engaged in a very competitive evening of photography amongst the membership – it was the annual Open Subject Panel of Three Prints competition at the WI Hall on Southam Road, Dunchurch. This time, our members were playing for the much cherished Jeff Bartlett Memorial Trophy.

In all, there were approximately 20 different panels submitted by members for this event, included panels of three different prints displayed together, and triptychs of 3 printed images together within a single mount. This all made for a varied competition, not least for the very diverse range of image subject, printing styles and processing techniques that members had used to finalise their images.

The judge for the evening was Paddy Ruske from Lichfield, gave our members some very honest and so very useful critique of the different panels that were on show during the evening. It was very hard fought, with lots of quality images, and clear thought processes that our members had undertaken to get their submissions into a competition worthy standard. All of this made for a very difficult decision for the judge as he gave his final verdicts.

As the Chairman of the Society, I thank all of the members who took part in this engaging and unique competition in our season calendar. Without your images, we have no competition, it’s as simple as that.

Naturally, I would like to give our collective Society thanks to Paddy Ruske for his valuable, good humoured and insightful critique of our images.
