The second internal club competition of the 2022-23 season took place on Wednesday 19 October.

The set subject, for both prints and projected digital images (PDIs), was “Weather”.

This was further described in the Programme as follows.

“Weather is the state of the atmosphere, describing for example the degree to which it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.  For this competition, we are looking for images that are enhanced or significantly affected by the weather conditions at the time.  As we are using weather as a noun rather than a verb, images related to weathering or something being weathered are out of scope for this competition.”

The entries displayed an assortment of weather – including rain, snow, fog, frost, storms, and even sunshine – used imaginatively and creatively in a variety of styles and approaches including landscape, seascape, travel, motor sport, fine art, colour, and black and white.

Our independent judge for the competition was Cathal Gantly, a “dedicated, versatile and enthusiastic technical writer, photographer and videographer” from Milton Keynes.  He is an experienced CACC judge who has visited LBPC before.

Each entry was marked out of twenty.  Marks for this competition count towards the season’s Print and Digital Image Championships (Sections One and Two).

(There were no Section Two Prints entries.)

The top performers were as below:
