Club Salon Digital Trophies
Our digital trophies have evolved from the days of photographic slides.
Champion Projected Image Trophy - Presented by the 1956 Committee members
We believe this trophy would have been originally awarded for the best Photographic Slide image of the year. Later it was reassigned and awarded to the Champion Digital Image of the Year, selected from all the digital images entered into the Club Salon. In 2023 this trophy was retired due to it's deteriorating condition and deemed too expensive to repair.
Since 2023 the Champion Digital Image is awarded the Joan Hamilton Trophy.
Joan Hamilton Trophy
The trophy was presented to the society by Joan Hamilton LRPS. Joan was the Societies' first female president and served for one year between 1966 -1967. It was awarded to the best Landscape digital image in the Club Salon. In 2023 the original trophy was replaced and it is now awarded to the Champion digital image of the year in Club Salon.

Paul Byrne Cup - Presented by Paul Byrne in 2013.
