Another great response of entries from our talented members with a total of 76 Images  for judging, it was a very challenging night for the visiting Judge Alan Taberer.

League Tables

I’ve added a new League Tables page to the website’s top menu. As requested by the membership I’ve made it password protected. I’ll ask Cat to send an email with the details.

To set expectations, this is just a screen grab of the scores spreadsheet, so it’s not particularly clear. Will think of a better presentation going forward, but wanted to get this out now as people have been asking for it!

Club night summary – 9th January

This week we hosted the 2nd round of the Rosebowl competition. Other competing teams visiting were Buckingham, Woodley and Witney along with our own representation of Images. There were a total of 60 Images shown for judge Peter Prosser to critique and score.

It was great to have such an array of really good Images shown and to appreciate the levels being achieved at other clubs. There were some really creative and well thought out Photography shown.

It was a high standard and understandably the scoring was very close, with most of the Images having already scored 19 or 20 in their own club competitions.

Our congratulations go to the ultimate winner on the night ‘Buckingham CC’.
