Axminster Photography Group

Thirkettle Prize

Thirkettle Prize



Our Group competition, using printed pictures, is held annually, involving both colour and monochrome images of a subject of the photographer’s choosing, taken within the past three years.

This is judged by an experienced judge from outside the Group, and the Thirkettle Cup is awarded to the winner.

This year the winner was John Lees with his sensitive portrait, Ethiopian Christians at Church of Holy Sepulchre, Bethlehem,  seen below.
