BPS Garmston Bowl 2016

30th June 2016
Very interesting evening at Bristol Photographic Society.
The Garmston Bowl is the club's main event of the year.
It calls for panels of 5 photographs on any theme and you can see my entry below (unmounted, of course.)
The judge was Chris Palmer FRPS DPAGB APAGB AFIAP and he enthused about it.
I was pleased with it too. It takes a lot of thought and a bit of hard work to put these panels together.
Anyway, he expressed the opinion that although he loved it he was concerned that it might not be acceptable that the winner in a competition held by a Photographic Society might be composed of non-photographs. Or, as he put it, screen grabs.
The pictures themselves were actually all photos, taken with an iPhone admittedly, and I tried to make that evident by including a rebate in each photo as you can see.
I always felt that the panel would ask a lot of questions and I'm glad that Chris seemed to see that.
I'm very proud of them and feel that by any definition of photography, these are all photos.
I came third and was pleased with that but would have liked to have won.
Hey ho!
The winner was Peter Brisley who also won it last year. Well done to him. I'm happy to be in the frame with such great photographers as him.
