In The Wake Of Alzheimer′s
GNPC has been entering the 12-month Battle of the Clubs 2010, run by Digital SLR User magazine. This is highly competitive, with clubs from across the UK taking part. We were very encouraged, as each round’s results were announced, that we were holding our own against tough opposition such as DAPA. In the end, GNPC won by two points ahead of DAPA, and once again, it was our club member, Mark Edwards, who came away with the prize for Best Individual Shot, with his powerful photo of his mother, entitled In The Wake Of Alzheimers [right].
Congratulations go to the whole club for this victory but especially to the photographers for each of the entries submitted and to selection panel who made a very good choice.
This is a fantastic acheivement for our first year of entry and roll on 2011 where I am sure we will all be battling to retain our title.
As a result the Club wins £3,000 worth of Canon Vouchers. You can see the club members proudly posing with the winning “cheque”:

Final Turn by David Ian Roberts
Despite being a very new club, having been formed less than 3 years ago, GNPC have recently been very successful in external competitions. At the end of November, we won the North Essex DPI Trophy, coming top out of 12 clubs, with our 5 images scoring a total of 95/100. Club member David Ian Roberts also won the best image of the competition, with his great shot of a diving gannet [left].
