This year's online exhibition is now open
Selection and judging were done by John Whitby MFIAP MPAGB EFIAP/p BPE3, a member of Leicester Forest PS. Here are John's comments on the accepted images.
It was a great pleasure to be asked to judge the 2021 L&L exhibition . Needless to say there was a strong and varied entry in all sections of the competition. Clearly, there were many different levels of experience on view but I was impressed by the wide variety of styles and approaches to commonly photographed scenes, people and settings.
Despite the difficulties facing photographers during 2020, it was good to see numerous examples of recent images and new interpretations of old subjects but perhaps not as many as might have been expected of the challenges of people living with the pandemic .
Congratulations to those who gained an award but also to those who have enjoyed taking part in making this a successful event. As judge, I enjoyed reviewing each and every one of the 700+ images presented and hope that the photographers who took part will go from strength to strength with their future work and compete once again in 2022
