2023 Ace of Prints Results

The Ace of Prints competition was held on 2 July 2023 at Briton Ferry Community Centre. It was judged by Gordon Jenkins HonPAGB, Richard Speirs DPAGB BPE2* APAGB and Rod Wheelans FRPS MPAGB MFIAP HonPAGB. Five clubs submitted entries.

The competition started with a warm-up round of 12 prints per club, in which they found out what types of print the judges enjoyed. They then chose 15 prints to go forward to the final competition. The results were:

Bridgend & Dist CC 201
Afan Nedd CC 200
Monmouth PC 196
Western Valley CC 183
Gwent PC 174
