Competition: PDI 1 2017 Advanced Class

11th October 2017: This competition’s judging was most unusual – but highly enjoyable. Marks were given by the appointed judge – Jo McIntyre MPAGB, but comments on the night were provided by our own John Tillotson ably assisted by Les Ayres and John Williams. This proved to be a constructive evening of enlightened comment and advice, and the club’s thanks go to our “judges”.

Below are the top marked entries in the Advanced Class. Links to the full results are available on the website: competition results

Imagination goes into the entries for the Millennium Trophy 2014-15

The competition this season was for composite images, and there was considerable imagination and work put into the entries.
Judging was on the 7th Jan, and made a particularly interesting evening. The projected images were very diverse in their subjects, with compositions ranged from the obscure and demanding on interpretation to the obvious. The level of creativity was very high. The winning image “Couch Surfing” was by Jo Knight – judging was by club member Pam Harrington, who thought Jo’s entry was good enough for an exhibition.
