The final competition of the year, the November Monthly for the Freespirit Images Shield was won by Gwynfryn Jones when his first placed print entitled ‘Not a good day for umbrellas’ was deemed overall competition winner by judge Les Loosemore. The second placed print was from Leigh Woolford with ‘Atop Mýrdalsjökull’ which also wins the award for the most unpronounceable title of the evening.
First in the DPI section was ‘Kingfisher Threat Posture’ by Alec Stewart and second was ‘And The Heavens Opened’ by Nicholas Jenkins, he almost won his own shield!!!
