Annual Photo Competition

Update on the 2020 and 2021 competitions

This update from Jenny Hatfield.


Entries for the 2020 Annual Photo Competition are now closed. We have had 30 or so entries in each of the four categories, and a fine selection of photos in each. Thank you to everyone who sent in entries. The judging for the Journal Cover photo category is now complete carried out by the Editorial group.

The other three categories, Light on the Land, Memories are Made of This, and The Start of Winter, are currently in the process of shortlisting, and the six shortlisted photos in each category will be on display at the Annual Dinner for judging by all attendees. Good luck to all who entered. All of the entries in all four categories will be available to view on the RHSoc website after the Annual Dinner.


The Categories for this year’s (2021) Annual Photo Competition will be announced mid April. Entries will be invited later this year, with the closing date of December 31st 2021.

Below is a photo from Gill Stephens, one of the runners up in the journal cover category.

She says,

‘This is the astonishing view as you arrive on the summit ridge of Beinn Mhor, looking south over South Uist. It's a huge surprise, really jaw-dropping, and like nothing else I've seen elsewhere".
