Print and Projected Image of the Year (P&PIoY)

2013 Print and Projected Image of the Year was held on November 5th.

This year the competition attracted slightly fewer entries than usual.   However, as always with P&PIoY  the overall standard was high.  You can see all the entries on the gallery page.

The competition was judged by Mark Beattie.   Mark was very complimentary about the standard of photography and the control of colour, tone and exposure that was exhibited in the photographs.  Special mention went to Sid Hayes for his ability to successfully shoot hand held while dangling from a helicopter!

Mark noted that, as seemed to have been demonstrated by our finalists, the key is still to get the photograph as right as possible at capture.  While images may be enhanced in post-processing, they cannot be ‘fixed’ if the shot was no good.

Mark repeated the suggestion, that has been made by former judges, that a very good way to improve one’s photography is to study other people’s photographs.  Do they work?  Why?  He said he felt the value of competitions was less in the words of the judge and more in our  examination of the other images.  I think we felt his commentary was, nevertheless, very helpful!

Mark confessed to having had difficulty separating the best images but his final selections were greeted with applause.  Here they are:
