Members were allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries in each category, what the authors considered to be their best work of the season, not necessarily those achieving maximum marks in earlier competitions. Martin had his work cut out to judge such a varied selection of styles and subjects, making helpful and constructive comments on each one. At the start, he explained the " checklist " that judges work to, i.e. impact, creativity, technical excellence etc. No marks were awarded for this competition, a first, second, third and highly commended only.
The winners were :
Prints - 1st Dorothy Wood, 2nd Nigel Holmes, 3rd Ramesh Naik. 3 members were Highly Commended - David Sherwood ( 2 prints ), Janet Marshall LRPS, and Dorothy Wood.
Projected images - 1st Dorothy Wood, 2nd Drew Malloch, 3rd Dorothy Wood. 3 members were Highly commended - Keith Hull ( 2 images ), Ramesh Naik, and Richard Keating.
This was an interesting and enjoyable meeting, even if attendance was a little down due to the bank holiday weekend, and rounded off the season's competitions perfectly. We look forward to meeting Martin again next season.
