Snap­shots celebrate our Brian

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Last year, we ran a com­pe­ti­tion for b u d d i n g young snap­pers in hon­our of our beloved pho­tog­ra­pher, Brian Logue.

And it was such a mas­sive suc­cess, we’ve de­cided to do it again.

Brian passed away on Box­ing Day, 2013 at the age of 64. He had been our pho­tog­ra­pher dur­ing two spells at the Re­former, in the 1970s, and from 2007 right up un­til his death.

With the bless­ing of Brian’s fam­ily, we’re once again look­ing for the best im­ages cap­tured by school­child­ren in the Re­former cir­cu­la­tion area — and the win­ner will scoop £75 cour­tesy of Media Scot­land and the mag­nif­i­cent Brian Logue me­mo­rial tro­phy, which was do­nated by an anony­mous friend.

Sec­ond prize will scoop £50 and there will even be £25 for third place.

The rules are sim­ple: any school­child, pri­mary or sec­ondary, can en­ter as long as they live in the Re­former cir­cu­la­tion area (Ruther­glen, Cam­bus­lang, Half­way, Burn­side, Castlemilk, King’s Park, Croft­foot or To­ry­glen), or they at­tend school here.

The pic­ture can be of what­ever you want, with the win­ners se­lected by Brian’s fam­ily. Clos­ing date for en­try will be Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 2.

Brian’s son, Chris, told the Re­former: “My dad would be de­lighted that this com­pe­ti­tion is run­ning again and the whole fam­ily are very grate­ful to have some­thing so close to his heart in his mem­ory — pho­tog­ra­phy.

“If the pic­tures from last year are any­thing to go by then this year makes for a high stan­dard in­deed. Good luck to ev­ery­one tak­ing part!”

Last year, the win­ner was Robin Ashcroft from Castlemilk. She was 10 when she took a snap on her phone of her and her pals mak­ing a star shape with their fin­gers. Brian’s widow, An­nette, de­scribed it as “so sim­ple, but so ef­fec­tive.”

Re­former editor Dou­glas Dickie said: “We’re de­lighted to be run­ning this in mem­ory o f Brian once more.

“He was a unique in­di­vid­ual who touched the life of so many. He es­pe­cially loved work­ing with the lo­cal schools so it seems nat­u­ral to ask the chil­dren and young peo­ple of the area to show us their best work.”

En­ter­ing couldn’t be sim­pler. Ei­ther email the pic­ture to news@ruther­glen­re­former. or send in a hard copy to Brian Logue Com­pe­ti­tion, Ruther­glen Re­former, Cen­tral Quay, Glas­gow, G3 8DA. Re­mem­ber and in­clude your name, age, what school you go to and the story be­hind the pic­ture.
