** 5 Awards in Smethwick International 2014 **

24th November 2014
I was guest speaker at Smethwick Photographic Society in October, and for the last couple of years I have won a couple of medals in its prestigious International Exhibition. So I was hoping to do well in the 2014 Exhibition, having been treated royally by the Club and its members during my visit - with special thanks to Roger and Judith Parry, and Tim Pile from the Smethwick Club.

This Years Smethwick International was judged at the weekend, and the results came through unbelievably quickly - arriving in my e-mail first thing this morning. I managed to get 12 out of 16 entries accepted, and won 5 Awards, including 2 Gold Medals - a very pleasing result indeed! What makes it extra special is the fact that all 5 award winning images scored the maximum 15/15 - so all 3 judges hit the '5' button for each image!
