The 2022 Annual Exhibition
Another challenging year drives another exceptional exhibition!
Our Annual Exhibition is the climax of the season, and what a season it’s been! With Omicron appearing as we re-started in September 2021, the Council took the decision to keep the programme online initially, reviewing the situation month by month, hopeful that we would be able to have at least half the season back in the room. Sadly this was not possible, as Omicron cases rose dramatically.
As restrictions started to relax, though meetings continued online, there have been more group outings and the club has maintained a packed schedule once again, thanks to the hard work and creativity of the leading members, headed by President Mark Farrington. It’s been another year packed with inspiring, encouraging and developmental talks, competitions and workshops.
The Annual Exhibition was another hard decision - we had really hoped to have a print exhibition this year, but reluctantly decided it was still too soon. Thanks to the work put in by our webmaster, Ian Wilson last year, we had a fantastic platform in place, though he has continued to improve it through the year.
As always, our focus is to do justice to the work of our members and put their talents on display for everyone’s pleasure and enjoyment. We believe we have achieved this and are very pleased to present another extraordinary exhibition!
We thank our Selectors – Mark Buckley-Sharp, Peter Prosser and Colin Southgate. Please meet the Selectors here.
The 2022 Exhibition attracted an entry of 664 entries from 64 entrants from which 332 of the highest scoring images were selected.
Selection took place on a single day, with all participants online – the Selectors scoring at the same time, the scores recorded immediately into our database. The Selectors then revisited the images to choose the award-winners.
The prestigious Club Awards, as judged by the Selectors, are:
o People (Colour and Monochrome)
o Pictorial (Colour and Monochrome)
o Image of the Year
o Individual Selectors’ Awards x 3
Cambridge Camera Club is very grateful to the continued support for the Exhibition through what has been another difficult year.
All sponsors were sent a set of appropriate high-scoring images, and asked for a selection of those which most impressed them along with a winner which best fitted the genre of their award.
