Results Night: Valente Cup competition
Judge: Stephen Fowler
It was good to see so many superb prints as befits out premiere print competition and finest trophy. Stephen Fowler is a member of Ryton CC and it was his third visit to Durham as Judge in the six years he has been one and you could see why we keep booking him. He gave an appreciative and insightful commentary throughout and his enthusiasm for photography and the prints in the competition shone through. The prints were the stars of the show – well done everyone who entered
