Landscape Competition Results

On Friday 4th November 2016, Janice Barton CPAGB, BPE2* visited the club to judge our landscape competition. With a large entry of images in the "Print" and "Digital Projected Images" sections she praised the high quality of the entries. Stressing that the chosen award winners were to her personal taste in landscape photography and that another judge may have awarded differently, the awards were shared out as follows.


The "Print" section was split into "Mono" and "Colour" print with all member competing together regardless of their skill and experience.

In the "Mono" prints, Anthony Clarke did well with 1st place with Noel George coming both 2nd and 3rd. Landscapes proved to be a good topic for Anthony as he also came 1st in the "Colour" prints with Barry Quatermass coming 2nd and Diana Magor 3rd. Well done everyone.

Digital Projected Images

As with the print section all members competed on an equal basis. John Sixsmith managed to pip wife Margaret to 1st place with Margaret gaining 2nd and Phil Sadler coming 3rd.

Landscapes seemed to suit our more experienced members as they took the bulk of the awards in both the prints and digital projected images on this occasion. The full list of award winners are below. Well done to the award winners and commiserations to those who weren't successful this time. There's still the annual competition at the end of our season with a different judge.
