Final NOPS club competition report

Following Thursdays Nottingham Outlaws print competition, which was also the final competition of the year that contributes toward the Outlaw of the year trophy, John Young submits his usual report on the evenings event…

The final print competition for the Outlaw of the Year trophy was held on 30th November.

There were 36 entries in both the open and themed section and they showed a wide variety of photographic genres. It is great to see some newer members of the club having a go in competition. The theme ‘Low Viewpoint’ produced a wide variety of interesting images. In the open section scores of 17 went to Nick Pearce for ‘Winter Runner and Dog’, John Young for ‘Retired to the Orchard’ and Lois Webb for Vacant. Eighteens went to Lester Woodward for ‘Niche Girl’, George Reilly for ‘Another Place at Sunset’ and Chris Houldsworth for ‘Shipshape’. Nineteen went to John Young for ‘King of the Glen’, Lois Webb for ‘Flying Scotsman’ and her ‘Wine Lovers’ and Lester Woodward for ‘Cheroot Lady’. Lester was also the winner with ‘Just Needs a Pearl Earring’.

In the themed section Lester scored 17 for ‘Sunset at ‘Patmen Bay’ and 18 for ‘Dungeness Rail’. Nineteens went to Chris Houldsworth for ‘Sony Centre’ and ‘John Rylands Library’. The worthy winner was Malcolm Nabarro with ‘Lamb and Slate’. Thank you to all who entered and gave us an excellent evening viewing our images.
