Locked-down members of Axminster Photography Group took part in their annual Thirkettle Cup print competition from their own homes.
Some 40 digital projected images were judged by John Tilsley, from Dorchester Camera Club, who generously waived his fee which was donated to the Axminster Food Bank.
Mr Tilsley gave his verbal assessment of all the entries via an audio presentation. Such was the high standard this year that he short-listed 13 of the images before selecting the top three.
First prize went to “Figure on the Breakwater”, by new member Paul Stark. The judge particularly highlighted the emotion and drama the image portrayed and its uniqueness to a scene with which most people are very familiar. Runner-up was “First Bend”, by Barrie Castle, and in third place was “Inverted Aerobatics”, taken by Phil Hodges.
The competition was organised by the photography group chairman Ian Crawford.
