Exhibition public vote

At our recent Anniversary Exhibition, visitors were invited to cast a vote for their favourite image on display. We know that Chris Pope came out tops with his fab image, Tunnel Vision, but you might be wondering how the rest of us got on.

Well… it’s not scientific, but I’ve tried to make some sense of the data just to see what we can learn.

Popularity of Genre

Curating the images was a tricky task and many images would have sat well across more than one genre. Some genres also had many more images than others. Once all weighted and averaged out, the popularity of genres to our local audience came out as:

  1. Landscape
  2. Architecture
  3. Natural History
  4. Pictorial
  5. Birds
  6. Domestic Animals
  7. Marine
  8. Street
  9. Portrait
  10. Flowers
  11. Sport
  12. Creative
  13. Wet Prints
  14. Natural History Macro

Landscape and Architecture clearly stood out at the top followed by Natural History, Pictorial and Birds. Creative, Wet Prints and Natural History Macro were clear back-runners.

Top 10 Photographers

Of the 206 votes counted, our top ten scorers were:

  1. Chris Pope – 37
  2. Pauline Oliver – 29
  3. Virginia Langer – 15
  4. Allan Willis – 13
  5. Damian Morris – 13
  6. Philip Young – 11
  7. Ken West – 9
  8. John Hodge – 9
  9. Tony Coombes – 8
  10. Brian Chivers – 8
