Once again, a very large entry with 28 prints (14 entrants) and 46 PDIs (23 entrants) giving a total of 74 images from 25 members and only just less than our first round last month.  We had pre-warned our guest judge, Amanda Miller, about the large entry but she was quite confident it was manageable.

The Bradford Abbas Shield is a local derby hosted by Sherborne Bradford Abbas with entries from South Petherton, Wincanton, Yeovil and Shaftesbury.  The judge is always a closely guarded secret even from SBA themselves.  SBA to date has always chosen the subject but they announced in future the subject would be chosen by the winners.  […]
Once again, the first round of our annual competition to find our “Photographer of the Year” elicited a large entry but fortunately not quite too many to cope with in a single night although it did  leave our guest judge Jim Pascoe with a formidable task and against the clock. The subject for the first […]

Once again, our Shuffell Trophy series for Prints and for PDIs was in three rounds with the first round split into first image with subject “Agriculture” and the second image “open”.  We had so many prints and PDIs for the first round that at very short notice had to split it across two evenings with Peter Woodhouse judging the Agriculture and Penny Piddock stepping in to judge the Open images.  The later two rounds were judged as planned by Mike Weeks and Malcolm MacNaughton.

The tables below show the rankings for all those who entered six images in the Prints and/or PDI classes.

Well done to everyone who participated, especially those who were doing so for the first time and we hope everyone found it a rewarding experience.  We also are grateful to all our judges who come out often on a cold wintry evening at very low cost to help us all improve our photography.  Critiquing and scoring a lot of images is quite an intimidating task even though they have gone through various judging courses.

This was the return match with Apsley after we rather disgraced ourselves last year, trailing some 33 points behind Apsley’s score of 401.5 so we were understandably nervous.  However we were relieved after the first round of judging with our English judge Paul Thackeray who left both clubs neck and neck so all would depend […]
This is a multi-club print competition hosted by Newbury Camera Club in which we’ve been invited to participate for several years.  This year’s results, which are all in quite a narrow range, are as follows… Newbury Challenge Plate 2018   Mar-17   JUDGE: Martin Pickles Wimborne scores: Total 9.5, 9.5, 9, 9, 10, 9 56.0 […]

In recent external competitions, Shaftesbury […]
