Olga Sinclair Virtual Launch

Normally, we would host our launch gala in Chantry Hall, serving drinks and nibbles, however, due to COVID-19, we were unable to do so. Most of our meetings for the season had to be cancelled, but we still wanted to run the gala. So, we got creative and ran a virtual launch instead.

For those who were unable to attend, here is what you missed.

Iain, our Chairman, opened with a brilliantly edited introduction:

Next, we were treated to what Keiron Pim, the adjudicator for the main competition, was looking for in a winning entry:

Next, Amanda Addison, adjudicator for the Members’ Shield Challenge, shared what she was looking for in a winning entry: 

Finally, Kathy, our Vice Chair, offered a series of tips, advice, and exercises in regards to interpreting and exploring our theme of ‘news’.

Overall the night was a success and it was wonderful we still got to engage with entrants and share lots of useful tips and advice.
