28 February 2017 – Battle of the Prints 2017

This was an inter-club print competition hosted by Malling Photographic Society.

The judge for the evening was Clive Tanner APAGB, FRPS, MPAGB
All scores were out of 20.
All the prints I submitted were A4, printed by DS Colour Labs
All were mounted on 40cm by 50cm boards supplied by Cotswold Mounts

There were 11 clubs entered into this ‘battle’:

Bexleyheath Photographic Society
Dartford & District Photographic Society
Gravesend Camera Club
Faversham & District Camera Club
Invicta Camera Club
Malling Photographic Society
Parkwood Camera Club
Reflex Photographic Club (*)
Sevenoaks Camera Club
Sittingbourne Photographic Society
Staplehurst Photographic Society

Each club could enter a maximum of 6 images each.  There were 66 printed images entered.  Once scored the points for each club’s entries were totaled up and then each club was ranked (see below).

I had two of my prints entered, see below with their scores:

elevated-egg-by-elisabeth-smith-1

 

Elevated Egg scored  17
(This image came first place in a club print competition HERE)

 

 

 

station-shadows-by-elisabeth-smith-4

 

Station Shadows scored 16
(This image scored 19 Highly Commended in a club print competition HERE)

 

 

 

There were some really clever image composites entered and overall these seemed to do better than the straightforward photography.

The finals scores were as follows:

1st Parkwood Camera Club (108 points)
2nd Staplehurst Photographic Society (106 points)
3rd Sittingbourne Photographic Society (106 points)
4th Invicta Camera Club (105 points)
5th Faversham & District Camera Club (105 points)
6th Bexleyheath Photographic Society (103 points)
7th Gravesend Camera Club (103 points)
8th Reflex Photographic Club (101 points) (*)
9th Sevenoaks Camera Club (100 points)
10th Dartford & District Photographic Society (98 points)
11th Malling Photographic Society (98 points)

Well done to Parkwood Camera Club for winning this competition.

Malling Photographic Society were very welcoming hosts and everything on the night ran smoothly to time and plan and they should be proud of how the event was ran.

8th is an improved position for my club but we were consistent with our marks at 17, 17, 17, 17, 17 and 16. But also is was confirmation that we need to try harder if we want to compete at the higher end.
