The occasion was the presentation that took place early in July at Ringwood School in front of budding photographers and parents, all eagerly awaiting the results of the new competition for next year’s calendar. “The standard this year has been even higher and more creative than last with some very artistic talent,” continued Dr Ridgway. “And thanks to the encouragement and influence of the course leader of photography, Stuart Fielder, (pictured on the right), we can now announce the winners and the names of whose photograph will be associated with each month from the record 380 entries submitted this year.”
