Results of the Day-tripper Trophy Summer Challenge – The Village

Dunchurch Photographic Society commenced their 2019-2020 programme in fine style on Wednesday 4th September at the Dunchurch Women’s Institute Hall with the first competition of the new season. The subject of this summer’s challenge was ‘The Village’ and how members of the Society interpreted the subject in their photographic media. 

This competition stands quite unique in the programme of events each year as the winner of the trophy is voted for by Society members. Members vote democratically for their favourite image of the evening rather than the usual competition format where images are critiqued by an external judge. 

On this occasion there were numerous prints and projected images submitted by members as part of the competition. There was a wide variety in the subject matter relating to ‘The Village,’ and the processing techniques adopted by photographers all helping to create a wonderful competition. That is a key characteristic of Dunchurch Photographic Society. 

Interestingly for this season, all of the most popular images were prints. It was noted that many of the images were taken during the series of President’s Summer Strolls, part of our closed-season programme of events where Society members visited Braunston, Wolston/Brandon, Brinklow and Ashby St Ledgers.
