Members of EPS did very well in our own International Exhibition this year.
No less than ten members had a total of 19 acceptances (11 colur and 8 mono), which is almost 10 percent of the total. I haven’t done any research, but I suspect that this might be a record, certainly in recent years.
I suspect that some awards might have been given too, were it not for the ruling that EPS members are eligible only for the Edinburgh Medal. This year it was Neil Scott’s “turn” to win this medal. Karen Berry and Neil have alternated in winning this over the last four years!
A very interesting statistic is that this year, only 15 prints were accepted from countries other than Scotland, England and Wales. I am about to look at the statistics from the 2000 exhibition to the present day and will publish these as soon as I can.
