Roger Force FRPS DPAGB APAGB from Dartford & District Camera Club judged our first print competition on Friday. Roger, a PAGB judge, a Premier KCPA judge and also a KCPA Kent Judge Advisor, and his vast experience was evident as he commented meticulously on all images. His emphasis was on sharpness and originality, stressing that when judging so many entries his decision had to be made within a few seconds.
His chosen winners were:
Division 1: 1st Philip Hinton with The Discreet Charm, 2nd Nicholas Hill with The Sacrifice, 3rd Stuart Thompson with The Old Pier Swanage.
Division 2: 1st Anthony Wright with Haystacks, 2nd Mike Routley with Light Through Yonder Window, 3rd Anthony Wright with Spanish Dawn
Division 3: 1st Martin Tilling with Full Throttle, 2nd Les Gordon with The Cube London, 3rd Linda Thackeray with Beauty and The Beast.

There was a large entry of high quality in all divisions and once again it is good to see some of our new members being successful. The results of the first round of the Small Print Competition will be announced later.
