4 Way Inter Club Competition 2nd Round. (Prints)
Tonight (Tuesday 21st Feb) saw the 2nd round of this competition, kindly hosted by Morpeth Camera Club.
In this second round it was the turn of prints, to be judged by Gerry Adcock. ARPS of Hexham Photographic Society. Gerry had 40 prints to evaluate, 10 from each club including both mono and colour. Gerry assessed each print giving a brief critique before scoring each out of a possible 30 points.
The members of Cramlington CC who attended were on tenterhooks as the marking proceeded. Cramlington CC were leading after the 1st round of digital images carrying forward 239 points to this all important 2nd round.
Maximum scores of 30 points were awarded to 3 prints from Gosforth CC and 1 from Gateshead CC.
At the final count Gateshead CC were acknowledged as the overall winners, scoring 264 points on the night and a total 2 round score of 491. Cramlington CC tied for second place with Gosforth CC both with a 2 round score of 490 and scores on the night being 251 and 260 respectively. Morpeth CC were 4th with a score on the night of 244 and a total 2 round score of 470.
So, in the end it was only one point that decided the winner. Congratulations to Gateshead CC for their victory. I think our performance should also be recognised and commended. Well done do all those who submitted prints for this competition.
The evening ended with the usual refreshments by way of coffee, tea and cold buffet.
