The North Cheshire Challenges 2014 galleries have now been added to the achievements pages.
Kathryn Scorah gives her synopsis of the evening:
All the ingredients were assembled. Five images from each of the 27 competing clubs, a packed hall and a judge whose job it would be to sift and sort the pictures so that the cream would rise to the top.
The heat was certainly on at North Cheshire Photographic Society’s annual DPI Challenge which took place on Thursday 13th February.
Malcolm Kus ARPS DPAGB EFIAP/b travelled down from deepest Northumberland to judge this competition, bringing with him the usual Midlands sense of fun we have come to expect from one of the top judges on the circuit.
His task was a difficult one with so many first class images. Throughout each round he seemed to be cooking on gas as images were dropped from the mixture.
After five rounds two clubs were in equal first place: Chorley and Wigan 10 Foto Club. Now only 5 images remained.
The cherry on the cake came Wigan 10’s way when Malcolm picked Edwardian Era as the top image of night. Thus securing a win for us.
Sincere thanks must go to North Cheshire for their hospitality and flawless organisation. And, of course, to Malcolm – we’ll send you a celebratory slice of cake!
