Glasgow District Photographic Union Exhibition, 2009
The GDPU has a history spanning half a century and has been organising an annual exhibition for the past 39 years. This year’s exhibition was their first under patronage of the British Photographic Exhibition (BPE).
As with all BPE exhibitions the competition is tough, see states below.
The job of selecting the images that made up this exhibition, around 15% of the total number submitted, were chosen by: Jane Black ARPS Hon PAGB , Des Clinton FRPS AFIAP and Les Ayres ARPS MPAGB APAGB AFIAP.
DAPA group, as always, put forth a very strong entry, which this time included around 20 award winning images from previous BPE exhibitions. Sadly, on this occasion some of those images failed to hit the mark, some by as many a 2 points, Duh!
