Diversity Award

While “Fur & Feathers” are always strong contenders in a nature competition, the Glennie Salon has a long tradition of recognizing some of the other animal families, botany and landscapes.  In that spirit the Diversity Award recognizes clubs based upon their top scoring images from six of the eight Glennie Categories.  This year the Diversity Award winner was the Toronto Camera Club.  The proved that not only do they take good images (placing 4th overall), but are also diverse in what they photograph.
