15 May 2014 Hankin & Scantlebury Shields

The competition season reached the trophy round last meeting with the awarding of the John Hankin (print) and the Stan Scantlebury (projected image) Shields. It was an interesting evening with the chance of looking back at some of the more favoured images over the season and see them in light of a fresh competition and a fresh judge, John Bjergfelt and our thanks to him. Rules for this round are as per the open competition but with the exception that this is restricted to entries that have already been submitted for the open and no points are awarded.

Image of the Year Results

[scrollGallery id=14 start=5 autoScroll=true thumbsdown=true useCaptions=true]

Thursday we had the results of our John Hankin & Stan Scantlebury Shields. Which are for Best Printed and Best Digital Projected Image of the Year. We kind of sprang a bit of a surprise on everyone when they realised that we had put the Novice and Advanced images in together. After all there can only be one best Digital or Printed image of the year can’t there.


On behalf of the Committee I want to thank everyone that has taken part in the Reflex Open Competition this year. The standard of your images has been superb. I know it takes a lot of time & effort to take part in the ROC and we appreciate you all making the effort. It’s probably one of the most nerve wracking and difficult things to put something you have created in front of a room full of people and wait for someone you don’t know to tell you what they think of it. If you’ve been paying attention to what the judges have been saying (or at least most of them) then you will realise that they have been pretty constructive in their comments. So if you didn’t take part this year I hope that looking at the images and seeing just what is needed has inspired you to enter next time.

The Judge

Pete Weaver was our judge for the evening and decided to judge them cold on the night which was a brave move that many judges would not even contemplate. He started off with the Printed Images and it soon became clear that the pile of images he liked and wanted to award placings to was going to be a lot larger than the ones he didn’t like. After the Prints he worked his way through the Digital projected and he picked quite a few to receive Highly Commended spots.
