The George Walsh Trophy and the Set of Three    

 

    The George Walsh Trophy

George Walsh   Trophy

 

This trophy is presented in memory of George Walsh, longstanding member of WPS, who died in May 2017.

During his 60 years of membership he was actively involved in the running of the Society, taking the role of President twice and being appointed Honorary Life President in 1991.

He ran the Society’s annual exhibition for 31 years, and was co-founder of the Audio-Visual Group. 

As a tribute to George’s work as a Hampshire Chronicle photographer, the trophy will be awarded to the winner of a new competition on the theme of documentary/photojournalism

    Documentary photography provides a straightforward and accurate representation
of people, places, objects and events. It is used to chronicle events or
environments that are significant and relevant to history, as well as those that show
everyday life.
   
    Photojournalism, closely associated with street photography, employs images
that tell a story, usually news-related, in a creative format that is entertaining as
well as informative.

 

Set of Three Members will submit three images that have a linking theme, on a subject or
concept of their own choice. The exact details for this competition are still being
developed; listen for announcements and keep an eye on the newsletter and
website for up-to-date information.
