The first category ‘Color Prints’ saw our own John Hooton taking both first and third place.
In the ‘Mono Prints’ Morgan O’Neill came second with a new and original image of the Rossbeigh boat.
Also in the mono section Rodney O’Callaghan took a well deserved third place. Speaking after the competition, Rodney expressed his surprise in doing so well and his delight in beating James Heffernan.
In the ‘Projected Images’ section John Hooton picked up another prize to finish third.
John Hooton also won the Seamus Scullane Memorial Trophy for the best overall image.
Within the different categories there were themes. Here again Mallow had more success, this time it was the turn of Bill Power. Bill won the best intermediate image in both the ‘Environmental Portraiture’ and ‘People’ sections.
Here is the list of the other Mallow photographers who also qualified for the National Finals.
