At the start of the Society’s year in September, the first event is always the President’s Competition, which is an internal competition judged by the members on the night and based on a theme previously set by the President in June. This year, the theme was “Photo of Many Colours”. A total of forty-two colourful entries were received, with a lot of imagination shown in many of them.

Usually the competition consists of images projected onto a screen with the members present on the night voting for their best images. However, owing to the current situation, the competition was held using Zoom. All of the images were viewed by the members attending the Zoom meeting using a shared screen and then the members used a web-based system to mark each image out of ten. After the vote, each participant was given the opportunity to say a few words about their entries and then the results were announced. Three images tied for first place, which were “Japanese Autumn” by Elaine Brown, “Rainbow” by Ove Alexander and “Baskets for Sale” by Terry Ottway. In fourth place was “Colour CD” by Peter Grove and in fifth place was “Scarves for Sale” by Dave Hastings. All five images are shown below. Congratulations to the winners and also to all of the members who submitted images.
