Sheffield Photographic Society’s 2021 Annual Exhibition, a print only exhibition, was scheduled to display in the Sheffield Cathedral during March 2021, following a judging day in early February where a visiting judge would have selected the images worthy of inclusion.

Although these plans were destroyed by Covid-19, the Society was determined to go ahead with the exhibition and opted to hold it in digital image format.

A total of 38 members entered 253 images across the various categories with 171 images accepted into the exhibition.

John Gorman's shot of Granelli's sweet shop won the Sheffield trophy.

From the accepted images the judges awarded 26 images commended status and 22 images highly commended status reflecting the high standard of members’ work. Finally, the judges awarded 10 images best in their category winning the appropriate trophy.

The full exhibition is available to view on the society website sheffieldphotosociety.org.uk
