And we’re off! Best Prints Competition Results

First up, big thanks to everyone who joined our TPS Welcome Evening last night. We had a packed house and we hope you’re as excited about the 2019-20 TPS programme of events as we are.

For visitors and prospective new members, please send in your Joining Form as quickly as possible to secure a place (details here). We’re very close to our maximum membership number. Please send your form promptly to Jon Cowdock via And remember to also let him know if you’d like to join his excellent New Member Sessions.

And, er,…speaking of Jon…

Last night, you picked your favourite prints from the 2018-19 season. The voting procedure was designed by Jon, the votes were counted by Jon, and, guess what, Jon won both competitions! Clever Jon!

But seriously, Jon Cowdock LRPS is the very worthy winner of these prestigious club awards, having presented two stunning prints that performed well in their original competitions and were rightly chosen by you as the very best of the best.

Here, for your enjoyment—and inspiration for your next photo outing—are the winning images:

Winner of 2018-19 Shirley Daniell Shield

(to be fair, those .jpg files don’t really do justice to the outstanding quality of Jon’s finished prints)


Don’t forget, this Saturday 14 September we’ve a very casual stroll around Godstone for our first Out & About. This is a perfect opportunity for you to dust off your camera or smartphone and head out with fellow photographers to find some interesting sights around the village. Full details here.

And next Thursday 19 September, we’ll welcome our first expert speaker of the season, the very talented still life photographer Polina Plotnikova. Full details here.

Happy snapping!
