Ilkeston Arts and Camera Club held their annual Mayor’s Competition on Monday 5th February
The winner of the Photographic Section was Josh Hutsby, and the winner for the Best Painting was Joan Pochin. This year’s theme was Fairs and Fetes, and coincidentally both titles were Ilkeston Fair.
The evening went well, and the Mayor enjoyed the competition, although she did comment that it was very difficult to choose a winner as all entries were excellent.
The club is looking forward to meeting Councillor Mary Hopkinson again at its Presentation of Awards Evening on 12th April at The Erewash Museum, where she will present The Barbara Mallard Trophy to Josh, and the Alan Webster Trophy to Joan, together with other trophies won by painters and photographers for competitions yet to be held.
