"The Beamish Trophy goes to Allan Meek of Saltburn"
The Judging of prints for the Beamish Trophy took place on Friday 25th hosted by Washington CC at their new club premises at Shiney Row Community Association. The number of images was a significant percentage up on the previous year but still remained on the low side.
A total of 29 prints from 16 authors were judged by the Richard Speirs DPAGB BPE2* APAGB, Julian Harrop representing Beamish Living Museum and Ian Woodley LRPS CPAGB, with the Beamish Trophy for the best print being awarded to Allan Meek of Saltburn PS, one of the clubs that joined NCPF earlier this year.
