The 2008 Little Ship Club photographic competition produced some great pictures. These were celebrated at the annual exhibition and prize giving in early December, presided over by the Commodore.

The evenings success is entirely due to the talents of many members and the assistance of judges, the previous years prize winners together with some of the members who had not entered photographs.

For the first time for many years, the art category was re-introduced. As the competition will be reported in full in the Spring issue of Little Ship magazine, only a couple of entries are on show here, one from the Making Way Category and the other from the Art Category. Both are prize winning entries from Honorary Port Officers.

The judges made their choices subject to the guidelines was the picture of acceptable quality and did it reflect the spirit of the category it was in?

Every year I am surprised by the results as are those who enter the competition. This year we are all being kept in suspense waiting to hear which photographer has won the Alan Walden-Jones Trophy. The Commodore will announce the winner in 2009.

So all photographers are encouraged to keep snapping out on the water or in the club house. The success of the competition in 2009 depends upon you.
