We enter 8 PDIs into this annual competition (maximum 2 images from any one photographer), and the other 8 Clubs in our Division (Division 7) do the same. The selection of 72 PDIs then goes round all the Clubs in Division 7 where they’re assessed and marked by an SCPF Judge. At the end of the season the marks for each Club are added together and the clubs ranked from the highest down. We’re currently in 5th place out of 9 clubs; we moved up a few places last season and hope to continue this upward trend in the coming season.
