The main exhibition space at the Landmark

Fifty eight of our members exhibited a panel of their work. Visitors were requested to vote for their favourite panel or indeed their favourite print. We were pleased that a high proportion of those who came chose to vote.
The winning panel was The River Thames at Teddington by Emma Durnford LRPS

One member, Anna Levene LRPS, gained a Licentiateship Distinction with the Royal Photographic Society. Another member, Steven Bonner LRPS, gained his Licentiateship Distinction the previous year but because his panel was retained by the RPS he was unable to display it until this year:
