Last night was the return of the weekly camera club nights at my local camera club (Burnley Camera Club)... the first one since March 2020! Amongst a few topics that were covered was the delayed and much reduced awards evening for 2020. Normally this would be a glitzy event held in April to celebrate the achievements of members for the year, with about 20 trophies awarded for various different categories including a couple of overall annual awards... this year it was only the annual awards given, so only two trophies awarded... and I won them both! All photos submitted for the competitions were taken on my OMD EM10ii so its quite nice to show that M43 can compete alongside Canon's and Nikon's and Sony's.

Annual Facebook Trophy - Awarded to the highest ranked photographer across 8 monthly competition run on the camera clubs Facebook page. I placed in 6 out of 9 rounds, winning 1 round had 2 second places and 4 third places.

Photographer of the Year 2020 (this given as a special award because of the stripped back nature of the competition) - Awarded to the highest ranked photographer across 6 monthly DPI competitions + the 8 monthly Facebook competitions + external regional and national competition results. Normally this would include colour print, mono print along with the DPI competitions and would also include the annual competition (8 categories with colour print, mono print and DPI sections) which is why it has been given as a special award.

Very good! Based on the shots you've posted here you deserve it. It would be nice if you reposted those winning photos in this thread!

I read my results wrong when I put them into my original post, I hadn't won 6 out of 8 rounds, only 1 win... I've corrected the original post.

Ha ha - you do have a sheep one somewhere that I love - I just assumed it would be one of those photos.... :)

But a great set of images, Chris,
I’ve got loads of sheep images, just none that I entered for comps in 2020
