Results of the 2024 Barrian Cup

We’ve received this from Barry Camera Club….

Thank  you so much for all your entries into the Barrian Cup this year.  The feedback I have received has shown it to be another very successful year, which is due to your involvement and support of this event.  As a Club we treasure that support and the opportunity to meet with old and new friends, thank you.

I have attached the results from which you will see it was a very close run thing this year with one point separating 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  I am sure you will support me in offering huge congratulations to:

  • Tenby & District as the Overall Winners of the Barrian Cup 
  • Neil Holman of Afan Nedd for his “Storm Brian at Sunrise” winning the Dave Cowdrey Trophy (Best Landscape & Seascape image)
  • Roger Daniel of Bridgend & District for his “Moorland Horses” winning the Mike Lewis Trophy (Best Image in the Competition)

Thank you to everyone who took part and I hope you will consider joining us again next year for our 27th Barrian Cup Competition 2025.

Hope you all enjoy your summer break. Take care and very best wishes from all the team at Barry Camera Club.

Pat Hollis,
Competition Secretary,

For completeness I have again attached the Rules (Word or PDF) and the Entry Form (Word or PDF) for your use. You’ll also need to arrange a payment of £10 entry fee to the WPF Treasurer David Condon.

The Competition is in two Rounds. Round 1 for 12 prints and Round 2 for 15 prints. You will need to have selected your first Round of 12 prints in time to Email me the completed form prior to midnight on the 18th June, you will need a printed copy to accompany the prints in the carrying box in the correct sequence– they need to be delivered at 9.00am on Saturday 2nd July 2023 to the Judging Venue in Briton Ferry. (Because choosing the Second Round only takes place after Round 1 is Judged there would be a need for attendance at the Event by one or more of your Committee members.

When the first round has been judged you will then make your selection of the 15 prints for Round 2 – you will need to fill out 3 copies of the Round 2 entry form – one to accompany the prints, in sequence, one to give to the team running the Judging and one for yourself. You should by now  have a better appreciation of what the Judges preferences and predilections are to better select your Round 2 entry – timing will be announced on the day.

The top two Clubs on the day will be invited to represent the WPF at the PAGB Inter Club Print Competition normally held in Blackburn in October.
