This month’s competition theme was “Motion Blur”. There were 21 entries for this challenging theme with many and varied interpretations. Once again we had to carry out the voting online using Google Sheets due to the Covid 19 pandemic.  This time we did the online critique in a live Zoom meeting which went a long way towards matching the experience of getting together for a meeting ‘in real life’.

Well done to Terry MacSweeney who won first place in the Unrestricted Category and Danny O’Donoghue who came first in the Novice category and also 3rd in the Unrestricted!
