The National Inter-Club Print Championships took place last Sunday at Blackburn in Lancashire. The following is a report on the competition from the Selection Committee Chairman, Peter Rocchiccioli.
At the Weekend Glyn Edmunds, Sheila Tester and I, with George Atkins, attended the InterClub Print Championship at Blackburn, Lancashire. This is a competition between the best photographic Clubs in Great Britain, 36 in total out of over 1500 clubs. We qualified as winner of the SCPF Print Championship, a true test and honour for the Club.
In the First round we scored 149, just below the qualifying mark for the final 8 Clubs.
We did score very well in the final of the rest of the Clubs, in fact better than last year but other Clubs also scored better and we finished in the top 15 Clubs, a very good result, only 4 points behind Wigan 10 the winners of the Plate. The judges favoured very soft desaturated prints.
As I have already stated Ann McDonald got a 14 and 2 x 15, the other high scorer was Lorna with a 13 for her lovely beach scene from Ireland.
Out of 500 top images in the competition only 8 get any sort of award.
I am pleased to inform you that Judge Paul Stanley give his choice of a Silver medal to ‘Catch Anything Yet‘ by guess who: Ann McDonald.
That is an excellent result for the Club and particularly for Ann.
