Annual Image Competition Round 1
Chris Bell from Deeside judged the first round of our Annual Image Competition. He gave excellent advice and constructive comments which we'll be able to use to improve our photography. Chris's task of giving marks was made more difficult by the consistently high standard of submissions in both divisions.
This was the first of four rounds with each member being able to submit up to two images in each round. Images are given marks by the judge out of twenty and the higher score is used to give a total out of eighty. The member with the highest total in Division 1 will be awarded the David Clark Trophy and in Division 2 the Jim Snedden Shield.
