3rd Club/Intermediate PDI Competition Update

We are looking at ways to complete these competitions and get them judged. Some clubs are using Zoom (or similar) to run an online competition meeting so that everyone can see the images and the judge is able to make comments and mark each image in a way that is similar to a normal competition night.

To give us time to sort this out and to allow us to discuss methods acceptable to the judge we will extend the deadline till the end of April. This will also give you more time to get entries together.

I will issue further updates as I have more things resolved.

Crouch Shield Results

We have just received communication about the results of the Crouch Shield. The live judging of images had to be cancelled but they have managed to get them all judged remotely. I am pleased to say that Chichester came in first place with 145 points, 2 points in front of 2nd placed Henfield. 3 of the images scored a maximum of 20 points: Alyssia Newman by ANdy Dulson; It’s a Dog’s Life by Lorna Brown and Port in a Storm by Jim Munday.

Well done to all. Another ‘trophy’ for our collection

View 3rd Advanced PDI Competition

I’m pleased to say that with the kind assistance of Rob de Ruiter we have managed to get the 3rd Advanced PDI competition judged.

Rob worked from home and typed in his comments and marks for all the entries. This was a considerable undertaking and I’d like to thank Rob very much for helping us in this way.

I have posted the scores and results through the normal channels and put together an AV with Rob’s comments and scores for each image. I hope you find this useful.

You can see all the entries and comments here.

Hoping this finds you all well.

We have contacted the judges for the 3rd Advanced PDI and 3rd Club Intermediate PDI competitions and I am happy to say that they have agreed to mark the competitions from home.

This will start with the 3rd Advanced PDI, which had been closed for a while anyway. I will anonymise the entries and provide a scoresheet to the judge so he can score and record brief comments on each entry. I will publish the results along with the comments when this has been completed.

Since there is no rush, I will extend the deadline for the 3rd Club and Int PDI competitions to give people plenty of time to get entries together and then we will apply the same process.

I hope you will join me in thanking Rob de Ruiter and Daan Oliver for making the time to do this.

We are still looking at ways that we might complete the Club and Int Print competitions. It is unlikely that we can use actual prints due to the problems in handling them, but we are actively looking for solutions. Watch this space.

Many other proposals are being discussed so more updates should be expected.

Keep Well
