At the recent East Antrim Open Photographic Competition, John Hooton of Mallow Camera Club won the Gold Medal for the best image in the competition.
This award, from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) is much sought after in the photographic world. John’s Gold Medal winning image was in black and white, which is the first time John has won in that format. Along with the Gold Medal John also won a PAGB Bronze medal, and a special panel award for the best set of three images in the competition.
The Judge for the competition was Mr Kieran Murray, and the exhibition will travel to a number of venues around Northern Ireland over the coming months.
