Chester Interclub Competition

Hoylake Photographic Society attended the "Chester Interclub Competition" last night and came 7th out of 16 clubs.  The winner of the competition was Warrington who were streets ahead of everyone else. 

We had to enter 4 colour and 2 mono prints with no more than 2 prints per member.  Three of our prints from Paul Anderson, Margaret Sixsmith and Rob Devenish went out in the second round.  John Sixsmith's print stayed till the 3th round. In the mono section, Barry Quatermass went in the 2nd round and Rob Devenish in the 4th round. Warrington survived till the 3rd round before losing one print and at the end they had 3 prints remaining in the 5th round.  Mid Cheshire and Frodsham took the best two images in the competition. As you can see below the club had a good set of images in the competition and we did our best but the overall quality in the competition was excellent.
