The winning entries in the Western Counties Photographic Federation’s (WCPF) digitally projected images competition were viewed using Zoom meeting and some members also met up at The Angel Ballroom.
Held earlier in the year, this is the most popular competition run by the WCPF and attracted over 1000 entries from 58 clubs across the south west region. Each club could submit 18 images and the subject mater was “Open”. As you would expect, the standard of images was extremely high and the judges scores were all contained in the range from 9 to 15 points.
The winning club was Bristol Photographic Society and the Gold Medal award for the best overall image went to “Deck Houses” by Peter Haworth ARPS from Bath Photographic Society.
We did not enter the 2021 competition but had participated in the competition in 2019 where we came a creditable 40th out of 57 clubs and narrowly missed being the best “rookie” club. We entered again in 2020 but this time we did not fare quite so well. Hopefully our appetite has been “whetted” to enter the 2022 competition and bench mark our images against the best in the south west region..
