International Jury for 2024 Salon:

Chair: Alan Tyrer AV-AFIAP, ARPS, DPAGB/AV (UK)

I have had a lifetime interest in photography but the revolution for me was the coming of the digital age. I have taken a major role in the development of my local club since then and have enjoyed and learned along the way.

 In recent years I have developed an interest in Audio Visual sequences to the point where I have achieved awards at many local, national and international events. I have also enjoyed judging at all levels. I particularly enjoy judging as part of a jury where there is a frank discussion and consideration given to everyone’s viewpoint. It has certainly enhanced my photographic appreciation.

It seems to me that a major part of our development can come from listening to, and where appropriate, acting upon, the advice we are given.

During my AV journey, I have enjoyed watching many hundreds or possibly thousands of AVs and listening and learning from many talented individuals.

 I believe that photography and AV should be valued as an art form, and as an art form, it will often not be judged totally objectively but despite this, there should be no losers in this or any event. This is a great hobby and an entertaining spectacle. I hope everyone enjoys the competition.

Henk P Tulp (The Netherlands)

I can still remember it well, the image that emerged from my first developing tank. It seemed so magical, and I have been a photographer ever since. With photography, you can pass on stories through the images, so it is not only my profession but also a passion. After all, they do say a picture is worth a thousand words.  With this fascination for imagery, I also began making audio visual presentations. At first only as a hobby, but after continuing to get more inspiration from visiting festivals and connecting with fellow AV makers, my productions became better and better and started to win awards. This was never my goal at the time, but it happened, and I became captivated.

There are several AV makers from the UK who have inspired me; two being Peter Coles and Ron Davies who I often traveled with throughout Europe. I learned a lot from them, most importantly being: “what do you want to say” with your AV? All elements must reinforce this, including music, live sounds, texts, voice over and photography. Since winning the GN with “The Bridge is Safe” together with Albert, I have been a judge for many national and international festivals.

It is always surprising how many topics and themes can be admired at all the festivals. Every entrant creates something truly unique and seeing the passion and ingenuity from each is a prize in itself. It is an honor that I, as part of the jury, can support and further encourage the creativity from each entrant. I wish everyone a lot of fun with this fantastic hobby.
