You could’ve knocked me down with a feather. I am a member of the prestigious Royal Photographic Society and hold the distinction of Licentiate (an “L”).
I also belong to their Digital Imaging Group which holds an annual competition. This year I entered the attached pic of Danny Harris’ goal in the back of the net, which was well received and was awarded a ribbon in this year’s DIG Digital Projected Image Competition. 650 entries were received from 219 people and the standard of entry was very high. I have had images accepted for Kent County Photographic Association in the past, but not so far for the Royal Photographic Society’s Digital Imaging Group. Nice surprise, and to receive it on my birthday, even better.
According to the email I received: “Danny Harris’s Goal in the Back of the Net” scored 10 (1st) and was awarded Ribbon, Selector Vanessa Slawson FRPS. So it will be published in the winter edition of the DIGIT magazine. I am still in a state of shock at that, which is the first time I have won a ‘ribbon’ (i.e. a special award out of those accepted for exhibition or competition) so thanks go to the team and the club, and especially Danny Harris for the opportunity. More like that, Danny!
