Winner - Peter Hewitt

Reproduced from in focus 19 (December 1986)

The MAIN EVENT at the November meeting 1986 was the first Annual Competition for the Best of British. A total of sixty entries were received, although some of the members who had pleaded for a British-only competition were conspicuous by the absence among these. The slides were each projected three times, twice at 6 second intervals and then once at two second intervals.

The original colous slide won.

Jellyfish by Mike Wong.
The original colour slide came second.

Third place with 27 points was KEVIN CULLIMORE for his double exposure composition of plumose anemones (Netridium senile) against the sea's surface, Second place with 33 points was MICHAEL WONG for a colourful shot of a Lion's Kane Jellyfish (Cyanea). Winner with 66 points was PETER HEWITT for his close-up shot of a lesser octopus taken in St Kilda.
