The season closed for Whitley Bay Photographic Society with the presentation of trophies.

At the club’s annual general meeting, Jim Welsh, from the Blyth society, was the guest judge for the final competitions.

He assessed the entries in the well contested categories.

The best projected image trophy was won by Richard Narcross, who produced ‘Tight Corner’, which was described as a ‘superb picture’ of a covered wagon drawn by a team of four horses seen from above.

The print of the year honour went to Andrew Nicoll with a dramatic picture of a rough sea engulfing the North Pier at the mouth of the Tyne.

Stu Williams was awarded both the club class mono and colour print titles, with Joyce and Brian Tunnard joint runners-up in the former and David McAllister in the latter.

The advanced section monochrome print championship went to Anne Swearman, with Andrew Nicoll a close second.

She was also awarded the colour print title, with Andrew Nicoll and Richard Narcross joint runners-up.

The projected image title in the club class was Stu Clements, while Jan Clements, David McAllister and Brian Tunnard all shared second.

The advanced projected image went to Andrew Nicoll, who also took the Andrew Potts Nature Trophy with ‘Cheviot Skies’. The President’s Trophy for three linked pictures went to Chris Hales for a beautifully produced set of nostalgic images.

The society holds informal meetings on the first Tuesday of each month and will begin a new season in September.
