Like many other organisations, Harpenden Photographic Society has risen to the challenge of continuing its activities in lockdown by holding virtual meetings.

HPS recently ran its annual themed competition night on the video conferencing platform Zoom, with over 50 members joining in.

Members submitted competition entries based on the theme of “movement” in advance, which were then remotely shared with the external judge, Colin Harrison FRPS, who sent back constructive critique on each image.

On the “virtual” competition night, HPS showed each of the images, whilst reading out the judges’ comments and scores.

The winning images were “Watching the World Go By” by Paul Johnson, “Passing By” by Iain Fry and “A Little Tipple” by Peter Wilson.
