The Christopher Lloyd Achievement Cup was won by newcomer Mrs Jean Merrick; Tony and Lynn Pompret were awarded The Mary Berkley Memorial Salver; Alan Worley won the Batehup Perpetual Challenge Bowl; Rosemary Husey the Society’s Domestic Perpetual Challenge Cup; Joy Taylor The Sheffield Memorial Cup, and the winner of the public vote for best photograph was Jason Thorpe who captured a fox in his lens.
