The first internal club competition of the 2021-22 season took place on Wednesday 22 September. As print handling remains impracticable in current circumstances, print competitions are currently suspended. Accordingly, our competitions are being confined to digital images.

So this was an “open” competition for digital images.  As usual, entries displayed a wide variety of subjects, approaches, and styles –  landscapes, travel, close ups, motor racing, candid/street, animals, birds, insects, flowers, abstract, colour and monochrome, and more.

Our judge for the competition was Kathy Chantler ARPS, Chairman of ImageZ Camera Club in Weston Turville.  Kathy is a long-time friend of the club as an experienced CACC judge, regular speaker, and visitor.

Before commencing, Kathy explained that she had been sent the images in advance.  So, rather than judging them as they appear on Zoom, she would be basing her assessment on the original digital files as submitted.

Marks for this competition count towards the season’s Projected Digital Image (PDI) League Championship (Sections One and Two) – see the Internal competitions, Rules for Entry 2021-22, page of the website for details.

Each entry was marked out of 20.  The top performers were as follows:
