TCC members received 6 of the awards handed out in the Dorchester Center for the Arts “Community Photography & Digital Arts Exhibit and Competition.”  They were announced on Saturday evening, October 10, during the opening reception.  Awards were:

Professional Adult Division:

  • Mary Konchar, First Prize
  • Fran Saunders, Second Prize
  • Graham Slaughter, Honorable Mention

Amateur Adult Division:

  • Cal Jackson, First Prize
  • Janet Kerr, Second Prize

Best Waterscape:

  • Fran Saunders

That means that TCC missed out on only two awards in the adult divisions.  Pretty good for a competition with 133 entries!  Congratulations to all.

The results were passed along to me by Jim Campbell (I was unfortunately not able to attend the reception).  Jim pointed out that the Baywater Camera Club, based in Cambridge, had their club name on the DCA provided labels, which certainly gave them some extra publicity.  We need to contact DCA in advance of next year’s competition to request similar treatment.
