2019 Gallery

Tuesday 30th April was the opening night of the 113th Annual Exhibition at CPA Camera Club. Not many clubs can lay claim to such history; our exhibition is the culmination of our year’s work, giving members the opportunity to display the fruits of their labours during the 2018/19 season.
We introduced several changes to our exhibition this season: as we have more members we reduced the number of images each member could enter to four per category, and we moved from a standard mount size of 30x40cm to the larger format 40x50cm.

Our judge this year was Damien O’Malley from Dundalk Photographic Society. Damien judged the Will McCrum Memorial Competition for Portraiture for us earlier this year and we were very pleased to welcome him back. The results of the 2019 Annual Exhibition are as follows:
