    Many congratulations to our Geren (Kathryn Polley) who is the 2017 winner of the Jill Todd Photographic Award 2017.

    I wish I could see the exhibition in Edinburgh, but if any of you can go, I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

    Well done Kath!

    Oh bless you Kate! Your encouragement from the 'sidelines' have been a really positive factor for me - thank you for cheering me on!

    I didn't really expect to get anywhere with it so didn't make a big fuss. I was delighted to make it to the final three though. Winning it was so far off my radar of expectations that I didn't see the point in shouting about it too much!

    Ah. Yes. I go by a variety of monikers but will generally answer to anything that's not rude ;-) It was odd seeing my name 'up in lights' so to speak - nobody really calls me Kathryn because it's what my mother used to call me when she was cross...said in two distinct syllables with most of emphasis on the last. Kaaaath...RYNNNNN! *shudder*

    Well you know, obviousy I was an absolute paragon of virtue but I can't speak for that Kate character ;-)

    My tutor from GSofA took Michael and me out for a pint in Edinburgh on the Friday night but I've just been chilling at home since - it was quite an intense experience overall. I have a nice bottle of red to enjoy this evening with a couple of episodes of trashy American crime-solving TV recorded which is about as much celebrating as I feel for up for right now!

    Well, when I was good, I was very good - but when I was bad, I was awful! Ha!

    Well done Geren. Have you thought how you will be known professionally? Your are going to make a career of photography aren't you?
    I've been looking at the Summerhill site. Will your work be in the exhibition archives soon?
    I'd love to see it.
