Porirua club grabs photo award

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua’s pho­to­graphic club, the Kapiti Cam­era Club, has won the an­nual in­ter­club pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion.

The event was hosted by Kapiti Cam­era Club at the end of last month and six pho­to­graphic clubs from around Wellington – Aotearoa Philip­pines Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety, Hutt Cam­era Club, Kapiti Cam­era Club, Kapiti Coast Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety, Karori Cam­era Club and Wellington Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety –took part.

Prints were dis­played un­der panorama, ab­stract, trip­tych, por­trait, and monochro­matic cat­e­gories.

Bruce Hut­ton, who was a po­lice foren­sic pho­tog­ra­pher for 23 years, was the judge.

An in­no­va­tive ap­proach to the tra­di­tional 10-print for­mat was in­tro­duced this year to in­clude a dig­i­tal com­po­nent with five broad cat­e­gories.

On the night the judge an­nounced a spe­cific topic un­der each cat­e­gory, leav­ing the clubs to fran­ti­cally se­lect the ap­pro­pri­ate im­age from their col­lec­tions. This gen­er­ated hu­mor­ous and far­fetched ex­pla­na­tions to support the choice of im­age.

Spon­sor­ship from Noel Leem­ing pro­vided six 42- inch tele­vi­sion screens and ca­bling for the pro­jec­tion of images.

Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett pre­sented a trophy to the win­ning club, with the Stella Daniell Award for best ab­stract to Kapiti Cam­era Club mem­ber Denise Gandy.
