An enjoyable day of Memorial Competitions was held on Sunday 20th January, attended by 60+ people.
The Judge Martin Fry FRPS APAGB EFIAP/g AV-EFIAP BPE did a magnificent job of commentating on the work entered by the 17 Clubs; he laid out his stall at the start that he was looking for the story, he was looking for the picture quality to be of the highest standard with appropriate tones and shades to maintain the viewers interest. This he did assiduously throughout also adding a touch of humour and evidence of his experience in photography. Well Done Martin and thanks for travelling down to see us.
Of the three competitions it was almost a clean sweep for Inn Focus Group with two first places and a joint first place with Bridgend CC in the Colour Prints.

This final Trophy was for a SET of 4 Mono Prints â€“ 3 panels were placed on the stand and the Judge set aside the weakest in his opinion with a new set taking itâ€™s place on the stand. Again the weakest was set aside â€“ but with two set aside the Judge then decided which one should be put back in the box.
