The Club held its first competition of the Club year last night, with a much improved entry in the print category. Over all 29 prints were judged last night, along with 39 digital images - marked change from the normal balance of images. It was great to see so many newcomers to the print competition (myself included as these were my first print entries).

The competition was judged by Janice Barton CPAGB BPE2 from Warrington Photographic Society. Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition. The winners and placings were as follows:-
