vTPS Set Subject Competition: “Weather”

There are few things we Brits spend more time talking about than the weather. So it was no surprise that we had a bumper selection of entries to our weather-themed set subject competition.

Our resident judge, the very talented Marie-Ange Bouchard, took to the virtual podium to review our images and shared some excellent advice on how she interpreted each photos and how we might possibly improve some.

In fact, the quality of the images was so high, Marie-Ange elected to throw caution to the wind (<-geddit?) and award not one, not two, but three joint winners. They must be on cloud nine!

Our 2019-2020 joint winners of the Daphne Cloquet Trophy are Gary Watson, Jeff Vianna and Jon Cowdock, and here are their winning photos:
