Report by Jim Strom
Thanks to all who came along and for making this such an interesting and informative evening for both clubs. Despite the inclement weather there was a warm welcome for the Hebden Bridge visitors who had turned out in force to support their club.
John Smith from Rochdale and District Camera Club presided as judge for the evening.
As is the tradition with the annual contest, both clubs each entered 10 projected digital images and 10 prints.
Starting with the projected images, the judge gave his comments on each entry and awarded a mark out of 20.
Out of the 20 projected image entries, 9 were picked out for further consideration and then the final marks awarded:
|16||On the Lookout|
|18||Manchester at Dusk|
|19||Honesty Seed Heads|
Final total for all projected image entries:
The prints round was another close run contest coming down to 6 prints before the final marks were awarded:
|18||At the Monte Carlo Cafe|
|18||Portrait at the Corn Exchange|
|18||St Pauls at Christmas|
|19||Towards Stoodley Pike|
|19||Wall Hanging, Blackburn Cathedral|
|20||Common Blue Damselfly Male|
Final total for all print entries:
Hebden Bridge was duly declared the winner with an overall total of 336 marks to Todmorden’s 323. The president of Hebden Bridge Camera Club received the ‘gavel’ trophy amounting to the fifth annual consecutive win by the club. We look forward to our next contest which will take place at Hebden Bridge Camera Club in March 2016.
