Banbury came in the middle spot against a strong competition from some excellent photographs.

Each PDI ( projected image) was allocated a score by judge John Haines. At the end there was a tie between Dustan and Dunchurch. Clubs had each provided a tie-break image in advance and these were called in for these two clubs. After a difficult decision for the judge, Dunchurch was declared to take first place.,

But I Don't Like Getting Wet Mum

On Monday 12th April, Banbury Camera Club held a Digital photography competition. Members had submitted images: either Colour and Monochrome in advance. This is the fourth regular competition of the 2020-2021 season and took place on-line over Zoom.

Winners in the regular competitions accumulate points towards winning The F-Stop, Tony Grice, or Bodicote Trophies. The Annual and the Walford and Round competitions are additional and do not accumulate points. This year in the absence of print competitions, points are awarded for digital images and will lead to the award of trophies later in the season.

Joining us on-line, the guest judge was Peter Cox. The results were as follows.
