Photographers from Potters Bar win awards

January 12, 2018 by  

A photography club in Potters Bar has been giving out prizes to its most creative members.

The Potters Bar and District Photographic Society (PBDPS) shared out more than a dozen trophies at a recent event. Postcards from Potters Bar may be useful for local firms. Fiona Adamson managed to secure six prizes. Independent judges thought highly of her work. Adamson told the Welwyn Hatfield Times:

“I am obviously very happy to receive such recognition for the pictures but am sure that fellow members will not let me rest on laurels next year.”

Adamson triumphed in two important categories. She received ‘Projected Image of the Year’ and ‘Print of the Year’ within the Advanced Class. Hundreds of entries were not viewed as reaching her standard.

Adamson’s mother, Marion Dale, also did well. She won three trophies. Her performance was deemed good enough to move her up into the Advanced Class later on in the year.

Dave Merrill obtained recognition within the General Class. He won two accolades in the competition. As a newcomer to the PBDPS, he suggested that his success was luck-related. However, the judging process means that his achievement was probably due to skill.

Graham Coldrick and Sally Oliver were also winners at the awards. Coldrick did well at the exhibition in part because of votes from the public.
