2014 Winner

At the 2015 Federal Rally Welcome Reception, it was announced that the winner of the Award for 2014 was Victorian member, Don Grogan. Don has captured the spirit of Club membership at the Victoria Branch Concours where judges were engrossed in their duties for the 2014 Branch Concours. Judging was conducted at the Lionel Gell School of Instruction for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owners, one of The Foundation’s premises in Melbourne. Victoria Branch members in the background of the photograph were able to watch the judges at work and learn about the technical aspects of Rolls-Royce and Bentley.

2013 Winner

Winner of the Award for 2013 was NSW Member Lloyd Missen. Lloyd’s photograph captured the essence of the Club – a typical Australian setting, a line-up of Club cars on the Dawn Patrol (held in September 2013 in Swan Hill, Vic) and perhaps more importantly, the spirit of friendship amongst rally participants.

The winner of the 2012 Photo Competition: the photo of the 1936 Rolls-Royce 25/30, GGM3, owned by Ken Folliott (QLD) (right) taken at the Queensland Branch run to Mount Mee in January 2012 by junior member, Jordan Carson (QLD).

Highly commended was Patty Aiosa’s (NSW) photograph of David McPhee (QLD) with his 1909 Silver Ghost, 1122, (right) the oldest Rolls-Royce in Australia, at the 2011 Federal Rally in Canberra. An evocative scene of a lovely old vehicle with its owner.

2010 Winner

The winning photograph for 2010 is of 1937 Rolls-Royce 20/25hp, chassis number GRC24 (at right), taken at the Queensland All British Day by Queensland Branch member Brian Carson.

2010 Highly Commended

Highly commended in second place is Victoria Branch Member, Adam Griffiths' photograph titled 'The loneliness of the car photographer' taken at the 2010 RROCA Federal Rally in Hobart (below). Mark commented, "I love the composition: the placement of the photographer is excellent. A photo full of character".

2009 Winner

The winner for the 2009 year is Queensland Branch member Brian Carson, who commented, “I have only recently joined the Club and a good friend allows me to take his Bentley S2 Flying Spur for a run.” Mark Bean chose Brian’s photo of the Bentley taken at the All British Day in Brisbane and commented: “There is something artistic about this photo, no matter how I laid the photos out, my eye always went straight to this one. The lighting and tones are quite beautiful, and the composition simple yet strong.”

2009 Highly Commended

Queensland Branch member, Kerry Moorhouse's photo of 1973 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, SRH16864, at the Pinnacles, Western Australia on the Terra Australis Overlander after the 51st Federal Rally in Western Australia received this comment from the judge, Mark Bean, "Strong desert location and good composition".
