Eva Kato Memorial Trophy

Originally, this trophy was awarded for photo essays that were not travelogues, then for 10 minute photo essays and subsequently for pictorial photo essays. It is presently awarded for photo essays made by Experienced makers, that is, makers who have previously won awards in the novice sub-category. Originally known as the President's Trophy, this was renamed in 2017 in honour of Eva Kato, who was a Past President (1995-97) and contributed numerous feature-length travelogues to the Club's public presentations.
