Thursday (4th Oct) saw the results of the 1st Open PDI Competition results revealed.
Our judge for this competition was Stuart Skelsey. LRPS, CAPGB, BPE1. Stuart moved to the North East from Berkshire in 2015 where he was a member of Bracknell CC. He gained his LRPS in 2010 and was a judge at last year's Beamish Trophy.
Stuart had an entry of 45 images of various subjects and themes to judge, and as each was projected gave a comprehensive analysis on what he liked and enjoyed from each, whilst also managing to 'critique' the images without being too harsh with his comments.
Stuart was asked to pick his top 5 images along with 5 HC's (Highly Commended) and after his deliberations the results were as follows.
1st 'Number One' Bob Finlay
2nd 'Striker' Colin Livingstone
3rd 'Edlingham Castle in the Snow' Bob Finlay
4th 'Calming' Bill Leadbitter
5th 'Reflections' Jim Meikle
'Giggles' Lauren Ashleigh
'Yellow Liley' Julia Robson
'Bookmark' Julia Robson
'Falcon' Terry Cookson
'Cornett & Bag' Bob Finlay
