The Raymond Wallace Thompson Trophy

Raymond Wallace Thompson ARPS was a long-time member of the RPS and of the Digital Imaging Group.  His photographic skills brought him recognition and awards from the UK and the USA and beyond. When he died on 20 October 2010, aged 93 years, he kindly left a legacy to the Group. The DIG Committee of the time decided that a fitting way to use this was to commission a trophy for the Group's annual Digital Projected Image Competition.      

The elegant solid glass etched trophy was designed and made for the Group by Steven le Prevost FRPS.  It was presented for the first time for the 2011 competition.
