It showcases all the winners and runners up from the club’s competitions in the 2014/15 season, apart from the Set Subjects competition, where only one image out of five from each of the first, second and third placed entries are displayed, due to space limitations.

Among the photographs on display are two taken by Wendy Eve in West Papua, Indonesia. Both featured in the RPS Nature Group Exhibition 2015 and one, Kunie’s Cromodoris, won the Selector Award.

Other competition winners represented in the exhibition include The Jack Thompson Memorial Cup for print of the year, The Derrick Leeke Memorial Salver for human portrait print of the year, The Horace Licence Memorial Shield for landscape prints, The Flora and Fauna (Nature) Trophy for prints, The Brenda Stiff Trophy for best print of a Sussex scene, Ron Moore’s PDI Cup for projected digital image of the year, PDI Flora and Fauna Trophy for nature projected digital images, PDI Landscape Trophy for landscape projected digital images, The Challenge Cup for slide of the year, and The Sussex Scene Trophy for best slide of a Sussex scene.

The club, formed in Arundel in 1945, prides itself on ‘friendly photography’. Members will be celebrating its 70th anniversary at the Norfolk Hotel on October 28.
