The George Walsh Trophy and the Set of Three
The 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.
