Pixels 2017, the 13th running of the competition, took place at Talbot Green Community Centre on Saturday 4th November 2017 and was a tense, exciting and high scoring affair.
It was a particularly good day for Mold Camera Club from the NWPA who, with 76 points from a possible 80, were the winners just a single point ahead of four clubs namely Western Valley, Towy Valley, Barry & Gwynfa. Mold became only the fourth club to win for a second time.
The Mold photos were: Baby Gets a Kick From Dad by Andy Polakowski (19), Dancing Through the Dirt by Matt Morrow (20), The Busker by Rich Hainsworth (19) and Unlucky For Some by Linda Bell (18). Click on the links to see the photographs.
The judge wasÂ Brian Swinyard MA(Photo), ARPS, EFIAP/b, DPAGB, BPE3*, PPSA who did a terrific job of expertly judging 156 images. He was concise, humorous and informative. Brian also selected Frozen in Time by John Hufferdine of Towy Valley as Best Monochrome Photograph and Tempest by Eric Williams of Western Valley as Best Colour Photograph.
