On 11 December 2023, images were submitted for the Ray Giffin Trophy competition on ‘Nature’.  As always, the standard was incredibly high with Kevin Williams BPE3 CPAGB having the task of judging the entries and deciding on the overall winner.

We had a fantastic array of subjects and photographic techniques. After positive critique from our judge, Perry Andrews was awarded first place with his ‘Incoming’.  Clive Hayward achieved second place with ‘Busy Bees and Ryan Wright achieving third with ‘One by One’. Congratulations to the winners and well done to all entrants.
