Honours Results Jan 2021

Honours Website Banner Jan 2021

Congratulations to our latest Honours recipients, your hard work has paid off and you can now use your honours after your name as recognition of a worthy achievement.

I know that some of you will be disappointed that you did not succeed and blame the judges, the system, whoever or whatever, but take a moment to look at your panel and look beyond the obvious. Technique is important but so too is the art and a good image is one where the art and the craft both work together to create a meaningful image.

Digital entries are projected and viewed on a large screen so the impact can be very different to how you view them on your monitor at home. If you are entering prints it is a whole different ball game as printing itself is an art which you do need to master.

One point that is often raised is – how can I do well on a salon, even winning awards, and yet the same image might not even get a credit in an Honours panel? With the vast numbers of entries in salons images with impact often do well, whether it is impact because of colour, subject matter or mood doesn’t matter, there is that something extra that makes the judges score high. In the case of an honours panel the judges spend the whole weekend judging and each panel is looked at carefully, not to find fault, but to make sure that the art and craft are working well together.

The required standard does increase from the LPSSA, through the APSSA and up to the FPSSA although some of the LPSSA panels certainly have images of a high standard. Even if you do think your work is of a higher standard than that of an LPSSA, we do recommend that you start with the LPSSA. We also recommend that you only apply with one application at a time and that you do not rush into applying for a higher honour too soon. There is no hurry – what is the rush?

Because of the restrictions of Covid we only had 8 judges, a smaller panel than usual. We welcomed two first time judges Kim Stevens from the Western Cape and Ciska Venter from KZN so we did have a well-balanced panel. A very big thank you to our judges Martin Barber, Johan Brits, Dirk Heyns, Francois Roux, Jill Sneesby, Kim Stevens, Ciska Venter and Peter Venter and also to Jannie de Beer for all the computer work.

If any of you are eligible for a (Vers) award please do let me know so that we can add you to the Honours list. In order to achieve a (Vers) award you need to have three Honours at the same level and if they are in the same medium then they have to be in different categories. Proof sheets of all three panels have to be sent to me.

Closing date for the next round is 1 July, but don’t leave it till the last moment, start work now and give yourself plenty of time.
