Bijen Gurung attains his LRPS
Congratulations to Bijen who was presented the award at the Gurkha Museum, Winchester on Saturday 28 October. Bijen Gurung's LRPS Panel can be seen here.
Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi, Nepal’s Ambassador to the UK, presented
From the Press release
Bijen Gurung, former British Gurkha based in Winchester has received the distinguished Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) making him the first Nepali to achieve this award. Bijen has been an active member of the Winchester Photographic Society since 2013 winning trophies and certificates in the Society’s internal competitions.
Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi, Nepal’s Ambassador to the UK, presented the award at the Gurkha Museum, Winchester on Saturday 28 October. The citation reads: ‘Bijen has been in love with the camera since an early age. He is primarily interested in people and portrait photography and has travelled to Hong Kong, China and the US to further his photographic skills. His principal love is taking photographs in his homeland, where he spent most of his childhood years.’
Surrounded by friends and family, Bijen responded to the Ambassador ‘I feel blessed and honoured, and may this be an example to all Nepalis to have a dream and the energy to follow it. I would like to dedicate this distinction to my late son, Nirvan, who sadly passed away in September 2015.’

Winchester Photographic Society celebrated their triumphant win of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation (SCPF) league.
Entering eight prints that were judged by a different judge on eight occasions in eight different camera clubs, Winchester came first in the top league, just beating their rivals, Chichester Camera Club.
SCPF’s members total 50 clubs, so Winchester are justly proud of their win. “We’re a big club with some very talented photographers, and it’s wonderful that their skills and creativity have been recognised in this way.” said the current president, Eric Blake.
Particularly remarkable was the achievement of Steve Green, whose Iceland print, ‘Westerhorn Beach’, received full marks in five consecutive judgings.
The four owners of the winning prints
The Committee also award Honorary Membership to Graham Barber for his devoted service as Treasurer of the Society for the last 6 years, an accolade well deserved by such a committed and generous-hearted man.
The Suggestions Box is on the Society Desk each week.
