Success at the YPU Exhibition

On Saturday 3rd May there was the Annual Assembly and Exhibition of the Yorkshire Photographic Union (YPU). This is a chance for members of all the 67 clubs in the YPU (Wakefield C C is one) to show off their photographic skills.  The prints and projected images are on view at the Bankfield Museum, Boothtown Road, Halifax, HX3 6HG, until the 31st of May, should you wish to go and see them. The museum itself is well worth a visit and also on exhibit are prints from the last hundred years of Halifax Photographic Society.

So how did we do? We submitted;-

  • 41 prints, 12 were accepted, 2 gained certificates, 1 gained an award and 2 were selected to represent the YPU at the PAGB. A gallery of the prints can be seen here.
  • 58 projected images, 13 were accepted, 2 gained certificates and 1 was selected to represent the YPU at the PAGB. A gallery of the images can be seen here.

We have one member with an award.  Sally, as President,  collected the Mabel Bruce Trophy for the best Architecture or General Record Print; – “Selby Abbey” by Phil Gledhill. Phil also received a Certificate for Wicked Hair”.
John Bickerdike received 2 Certificates for “Girl in Window” and “The Investor”. Possibly the most pleased Wakefield C C member, Jack M Bunn received a Certificate for “Lesley”.
Well done to all the member who entered, even if they failed to be selected, it’s the taking part that helps the Club to flourish.

Now let’s look at the individual acceptances, it is nice to see that some of these are from members who have not entered before. These are in no particular order, just as they are set out in the catalogue.
