Annual DPI Competition Results

Friday 27th April saw the judging of the Annual DPI Competition by Adrian Lines MPAGB ARPS FBPE and Janes Lines MPAGB LRPS BPE5* They had a huge number of images to get through on the night but still managed to carry out a short critique of each image. Judging the monthly competition subjects again gave club members a second chance of gaining awards. Art is subjective of course and with a fresh set of eyes carrying out the judging the monthly competition results were stood on their head.

Congratulations to those members who gained awards on the night. The top three awarded images in each section are shown below. Commiserations to those who didn't gain any awards. Your images still contributed to an enjoyable evening.
