Themed Competition

Judge: Andy Hayes

The theme for this year will be decided following a poll of members, listing a number of themes suggested at our AGM in 2024.  Once selected, this entry will be updated.  Andy is no stranger to KPC and is a much welcomed returning speaker and judge.  He has published several books on his craft and inspires and works with individuals or small groups.  He says on his website that his photography is about a connection, an embrace, sometimes quirky and sometimes reflective, however the client wishes to be portrayed.
