Portfolio Competition 2018

The annual LBPC Portfolio Competition took place on Wednesday 18 April 2018. Entries for this competition consist of 3-5 prints or digital images to be judged as a panel. The pictures must show some link – such as a common colour, subject or shape – identifiable by the judge. (Full details in the LBPC Handbook 2017-2018.)

This year the competition was judged by Kathy Chantler ARPS (Secretary of the ImageZ Camera Club at Weston Turville).

The portfolios included images of all manner of subjects and styles (including seascapes, landscapes, cityscapes, nightscapes, architecture, portraits, street, travel, abstract, still life, wildlife, flowers, cars, engines, machinery, speedway, and both colour and black and white). And the groups of PDIs were presented in some very imaginative arrangements.
