68th Southport National Open
Exhibition - 2015 Photographs below are by Tony Thompson,
SPS Hon. Historian.
THE Southport Photographic Society held
its Exhibition Awards Ceremony, on 29 March 2015, in Christ Church, on Lord
Street. The event is now in its 68th year, and it is going from strength to
strength awarding photographers, young and old alike. The entry stats for prints
and dpi (digital projected images) are the National Open 3616 images, Members
151 and Young Photographers 164 prints. On display in
Wayfarers there are a
total 451 prints. The opening ceremony, of the exhibition, was conducted by The
Worshipful the Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Kevin E Cluskey, BA Hons, who also took a
look at the Southport National Open Exhibition, which followed on from the
opening proceedings. The 3 sections on public display are the National Open
Exhibition, in the main Arcade area and in the shop display; also in the arcade,
one will find the SPS Members Annual Exhibition and the Young Photographers Competition. This year's exhibition is supported by the Southport South Links
Rotary and it is open for viewing until 29 March 2015. We would strongly
recommended one to go and look at what is an exceptional display of photographic
skills. It is also worth noting that The Southport Photographic
founded in 1890 and it is celebrating its 125th Anniversary, this year. The
photographs in this column are with the permission from to SPS Hon Historian,
Tony Thompson, to whom we extend our thanks and in the other column, on this
page, are some shots of the event taken by our Editor Patrick Trollope. A few extra pictures are also added
on the following page which our editor took. We will also be putting some video
clips of the Awards Ceremony, on our Facebook
Page. Well done to all who took
part and congratulations to all the winners!
