Congratulations to club member and presenter Manfred Mueller.
On Thursday, he received an email from CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) that one of his images had taken 1st place in a national B&W competition.
On Friday, he received another email, this one from the Toronto Salon, which is the most prestigious photographic competition in the country, that he had received two major international awards for his work. The Toronto Salon is the oldest photographic salon in the Americas and the second oldest in the world. The 129th running of the salon has just been finished.
