The Sentinel - Winner Landscape - Best overall Print

Annual Exhibition 2019

By Competitions, News No Comments

Our 2019 Annual Exhibition kicked off last night with the official opening at Macclesfield Library. In total we had 43 prints and 91 PDIs. This was lower than last season in terms of the number of prints and a little lower in the number of PDI’s, but we had a similar number of authors entering. However the standard of the entries was as high as ever so well done everyone who won and well done to all those who entered. A big thank you to Alan Towse our judge for his expert judging on the evening.

The winning prints and images, as well as prints and images from across the competition, can be viewed in the gallery at Macclesfield Library. The full list of classified prints and images can be found here:


The full set of PDI’s entered is also available to view on the Monitor.

Your Locality competition & 2019 internal competition results

By News No Comments

Many thanks to everyone who submitted images for our fifth and final competition of the season which was for digital images. 

The theme was “Your Locality”, being within 10km of Macclesfield town centre. The competition was judged by Rob Hockney, who is an ex-MCC member, current member of North Cheshire Photographic Society, is highly active with the L&CPU and holds a number of photographic distinctions including DPAGB and BPE5*.  

Rob provided some very direct and constructive feedback, and was keen to point out that from his perspective photographic competitions are about judding the art that is “made” rather than simply a photo that is “taken”. You can see some of Rob’s own work over at his web site  

Your Locality Results

Congratulations go to Kevin Blake for the highest ranking image on the night which was “Curiosity” (the image can be seen below) – scoring a maximum 20 points and gaining 1st place. Kevin also had two other images in the top 5, the remaining held images being from Steve Gresty and Terry Heathcote.
