Annual Exhibition 2024 – the judging

‘Loki, African Grey’ by Dale Powell

The ‘Annual’ is our final major competition of the year, where members can show off their best from the whole season. The standard of entries was extremely high, and judge Rob Davis gave an excellent assessment of every image.

Rob awarded the trophy for Best Image of 2023-24 to Dale Powell for his stunning monochrome print of an African Grey Parrot. The details in the bird’s feathers and bill were superb, all shown off with top quality printing. This was one of three of Dale’s images that scored 20 points. Congratulations Dale, well deserved!

However, Dale wasn’t our only photographer to have maximum scores in the images. Jim Stevenson, Martin Clark and Colin Robinson also receiving top marks for images.

All in all, the club can be very pleased with the high standard on display and can look forward to representing Scotland in the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain’s projected image final later in July.
