Members can enter up to 2 prints and/or 2 PDIs in this end-of-season competition.  Entries may have been shown before in this year’s Shuffell competition or be entirely new.  Unusually, we had the same number of prints as PDIs, 26 of each which made for a very comfortable number of images for our judge, John […]
We host the Shaston Challenge to bring together a variety of neighbouring clubs each year for a friendly 4-way match with each club submitting just 12 PDIs.  The judge is kept secret, even from ourselves (except of course for Bill who has the nerve-racking task of planning the evening 🙂 ).  This year, our guest […]
This was our third match with Aspley CC who are a similar but slightly stronger club than us, judging by the results.  These international matches are interesting because they break across some of the fashions in photography as well as in judging.  There are also some differences in how competitions are run.  For example, in […]
This was the final round of our annual trophy competition to find our Photographer of the Year. It was originally scheduled to take place at the end of January but we had to postpone it due to the snowfall. We had booked Mike Weeks to come and judge our Ladies v Gents competition on the […]

We had eight entries for our annual audio-visual evening this season. Members voted by rating their favourites 1, 2 or 3. The overall winner by a substantial margin was Richard Blake with his “These Boots”. Dan H came 2nd with “A baffled traveller” with Jeffrey B coming a very close 3rd with “Wildlife in the garden”.

Congratulations to Richard for winning and thanks to Brian for organising it.

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.
