Jim Henson Competition Results 4 March 2023

Steve Kirkby receiving the trophy from Ken Scott

Congratulations to Steve Kirkby CPAGB/AV, for winning the Jim Henson AV trophy for the second time! Steve also won the trophy in 2020 with “Revival”.

We extend a special thank you to our judge Ken Scott for an interesting and informative afternoon. The meeting was held in Headley Village Hall, and started with Ken giving us his views on making Audio Visuals. He also showed us 2 of his excellent AV productions.

Ken commented on each AV in the competition, making this a good learning event as well as an entertainment. There was a good turnout on this cold March afternoon, and we were given an Audio Visual treat by Ken and the 17 entrants.
