'Winter' was the theme of the first internal competition of 2016 held at the Midleton Park Hotel on Tuesday 19/01/16. Following two viewings of the eighteen entries, marks were awarded which yielded the following results:
Fidelma Read took first place in Grade A with an outstanding portrait while Denis Barry was second and Anthony O'Connor, third, beating Finbarr O'Shea to the spot on the very last vote.
RJ Mani continued his winning streak by coming first in Grade B beating Joe Keniry and Noelle Lowney who came second and third respectively.
Keith Johnson came first in Grade C with a fine winter landscape from Killarney while Magda Mani and Jim Curtin took the second and third spots.
In the overall high scores across all three Grades, the Grade A results were replicated with Fidelma Read, Denis Barry and Anthony O'Connor taking the honours.
Well done to all entrants, especially those new members entering for the first time, and congratulations to those who gained valuable points towards this year's Photographer of the Year competition.
