Bevan Tulett (Honours Board Chair)
The guide lines state that the Honours Board will be looking for diversity, in both subject matter and
technique, with the emphasis being on the Set rather than the individual images. It must flow well from one to the next and be to a high standard.
I am pleased to say all the Sets displayed good diversity (both subject matter and technique). I don’t think any Set was marked down because of failure to comply. However, especially with the unsuccessful Sets, flow was the major concern, big shifts in colour, horizontals, verticals, then back to horizontal, birds/animals facing in, then out. A number of Sets did not flow very well, and a number of images were not to a high enough standard. We had one Set entered in the Creative Category, it started off well, but never had enough good images to finish with. The standard we set is quite high, Honours distinctions are not given away, they are hard earned and meaningful, those that have been successful can be rightly proud.
The Honours Board, were pleased to award two NPSNZ Associateships this year.
Congratulations to Carolyn Elcock and Priscilla Chapman
