Simon Darney

Until his untimely death in 2002, Jack Levett was our president.  Well known and respected in the Chelmsford area, as well as being an amateur photographer, Jack was an accomplished organist, choirmaster, brass band master, scout leader and philatelist. Everything he did, he did enthusiastically and well. He tried to encourage our members to take more photos by issuing his annual challenge.  He believed strongly that our competitions should not consist of pictures already taken but that we should go out and take pictures specially for the competition.

 

Jack Levett

For this, he specified a subject or subjects each year. Each entry must consist of three pictures (either prints or slides but not a mixture) on the subjects he set. Jack donated money prizes for the first, second and third places. Since his death we have continued the tradition but each year the winner nominates the subject for next year. The money prize, awarded now by the club, goes to a charity nominated by the winner. The winner is also awarded the Jack Levett trophy which he keeps for a year. In this small way the memory of a much loved and respected member of the town is perpetuated.
