Competition Evenings

These are competitions amongst Society members and are judged by a variety of experienced judges or professional photographers. There is a mix of open and themed competitions, and images are marked out of 20. Any member can enter and judging takes place anonymously, so it's a great forum for everyone to have their images constructively critiqued.

The total scores from the print and DPI (digital projected image) competition rounds held each season decide who are our "top" photographers in each category.

2022/23 Competition Round 2 Judged!

Round 2, with the theme of 'Speed', was judged by Ian Ryall CPAGB on 6th September 2022. Ian, the President of Loughton Camera Club, was an entertaining and instructive judge. A full report of his comments is available in the blog (see link below).

Eleven members displayed prints and Dan Waller was awarded maximum points for 'Speedy Delivery'. So, after 2 rounds, Debbie Smyth, John Murray & Dan Waller are top of the leader board, each with 39 points.

Twenty members entered the DPI competition and Rob Wilkinson ('Wild Goose Chase') & Colin Page ('London Triathlon 2022') were both awarded maximum points. So, after 2 rounds, Rob Wilkinson is top of the leader board with 40 points.

Thanks to Debbie Smyth and Dennis Law for managing the image projection and Zoom. Thanks also to Colin Page, John Murray and Ian Major for handling the Prints.
