2020 Gallery

Tuesday 1st September was the opening night of the 2020/21 season and the 114th Annual Exhibition at CPA Camera Club. Our Exhibition was deferred in April due to the lockdown restrictions put in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However since not many clubs can lay claim to such a long history, it was important to the Committee to maintain tradition as much as possible, and so rather than being cancelled altogether the Exhibition was deferred, the print sections were run with digital submission of images, and the projected digital image section was not contested.

Our judge this year was Anita J Kirkpatrick from Enniskillen Photographic Society. Anita judged one of our NIPA Interclub competition rounds for us earlier in the year and we were very pleased to welcome her back, virtually if not physically. Anita judged the images online and presented her feedback via a Zoom video conference with the members.
