Photo Essay Competition
The Reeser Trophy
Photo essays present a set of photographs with music, text, or commentary, to relate an interesting story
about people, places, or events, or to display a visually creative theme.
Starting from the 2022-2023 season, two or more members may jointly prepare and enter a Photo Essay for the competition.
The first-place winner(s) is awarded the Reeser Trophy. There is a certificate for a runner-up.
Members compete for the Reeser Trophy, which was donated to the club
by the family of former members Karl and Phyllis Reeser.
The trophy was donated to the club, in 2002, by the Reeser family, in recognition of Karl and Phyllis Reeser’s
contribution to photography while they were members of the Don Mills Camera Club.
It was in honour of their 55th wedding anniversary.
Karl and Phyllis especially liked photo essays and mentored some of our members
on the art of storytelling through photography.
