Cricklade CC Battle – March 19th 2019

The Club hosted a battle with Cricklade Camera Club which was the first occasion the two clubs have competed head-to-head. Digital entries were judged by David Sage from Lacock Positive Photography Club, who is a recently qualified judge and did a sterling job.

Each club submitted 30 Open subject images in total and half were viewed and judged before breaking for refreshments, with the remainder judged afterwards. As expected the Open category attracted a wide array of images covering many genre which made judging even more challenging. Each image was scored out of 20 points and by the tea break Cricklade CC had built up a small lead. The second half proved to be even more successful for Cricklade with three of their images scoring maximum points and they ran out overall winners on the evening.

Attendees were treated to a high quality collection of images which made for an enjoyable evening. It is hoped to make this battle an annual event and we will strive hard to reverse the outcome next year.
