2018 Neville Jackson Trophy – Image of the Year Competition

2018 Neville Jackson Trophy – Image of the Year Competition

Last night saw the  2018 Neville Jackson Trophy – Image of the Year Competition.

It was judged by Bob Moore, Hon.FRPS, MPAGB, Hon.PAGB, FIPF, FBIPP. Who gave some quite insightful comments on each image.

It was an open themed print completion although disappointingly only attracted 30 entries but there were still some cracking images
