BPS Photographic Competition 2015

Many thanks for a very successful second BPS photographic competition. Following a late rush we had eight competitors who sent total of 44 fine ferny photographs. Entries were split into three classes: ferns in a natural landscape, cultivated ferns; and items with a fern theme. Attendees at the AGM were asked to vote for their favourite photograph in each class, and though there was a good broad distribution of votes among the pictures, and competitors, there were clear winners and runners up in each group.Class 1 – Ferns in a natural landscape
