Each year members of C&HVPS submit up to three images to be entered into our annual Exhibition. Images are entered under the General category or a Themed category. The subject of the themed category is decided by the previous year’s Chairman. The Theme for 2020 was ‘Whatever the Weather’. Each year an experienced external selector appraises members Exhibition images and identifies her or his favourite images from the General and Themed categories, also awarding commendations. In addition the selector identifies what she or he considers to the best monochrome image and awards the Denis Thorpe Prize. Also selecting the best colour image, to be awarded the Catherine Cup.
