Knutsford Photographic Society takes part in latest competition

The themes of LANDSCAPE and nature provided the perfect challenge for the Knutsford Photographic Society (KPS).

Society members participated in another evening of competition showcasing the talents of the citizens of the city.

John Cridland said: “In a first for the club, members were encouraged to submit their best landscape and nature images for a new competition format.

“Members took up the challenge with nearly eighty images to choose from.

“Judge Ian Whiston, Fellow of the Crewe Photographic Society, had the extremely difficult task of shortlisting and then submitting his top five images in each category.

“The quality of the work presented was evident.

“With more than 30 images selected or commended, the top five eventuals were worthy winners.

“Club Chairman Karl Creaser commented on the success of the evening, with attendance at an all-time high, and that membership was back to pre-pandemic levels.

“KPS members are looking forward to a great season of all things photography.

“With several new members already on board, the club’s program is proving to be a great success.”

Trevor Hosking, Program Secretary, said: “With such a diversity of photographic talent available in the North West, we have been successful in attracting some very good speakers spanning several different genres of photography.

“Members and prospective members are encouraged to visit our website for club program information and also to view the latest images on knutsfordps.org.uk.”
