2022 10-Club Portrait Competition Results

Along with nine other camera clubs, MCC entered the 2022 10-Club Portrait Competition, the Awards night took place on Tuesday 23 August via Zoom. MCC came a close second to Camberwell Camera Club – Congratulations to all who submitted entries. Scores and commentary will be available on all images in the near future on the Club website. 

Special congratulations to Paul Dodd for winning the Best in Competition image with his Self Portrait. Congratulations to Erik Sawaya for winning Runner-up in the Two or More People Category. Congratulations also to our Highly Commended winner, Ralph Domino (Creative). Congratulations to those MCC members that received Commended awards, John Godfrey, Ian Bock, Lindsay Muirhead and Tuck Leong. Obviously, everyone did very well for us to receive second place overall of the 10 Clubs competing. 

On Tuesday 30 August starting at 7.30pm there will be follow-on Zoom gathering where all the highly awarded photographers will be invited to talk in some detail about their image so that we can all enjoy these images further and learn from their creators. It should be a very interesting night and so please join if you can.
