The second competition of the 2020-2021 club year, and the theme again was "Open". There were 54 digital images to be judged, and obviously due to being virtual, there were no printed images. The images were judged and given positions offline by Colin Douglas ARPS AFIAP DPAGB BPE4, his comments being read out by Ian Sprott, with additional commentary and critique (that did not affect the scoring) provided by Helen Greenwood and Lawry Simm.
As ever, points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition.
The winners and placings were as follows:-
Projected Digital Images Competition
1st Place - “Good Night Mexico” by John Kemp
2nd Place - “Vintage Car Slalom” by Richard Connolly
3rd Place - “Stand Alone” by David Mellor
4th Place - “Focus” by Bernard Booth
