The Two Hemisphere competition is an annual bilateral photographic competition between LBPC in the UK and Camberwell Camera Club in Melbourne, Australia.  Each club enters 30 PDIs and these are judged both in the UK and in Australia.  Each entry is scored out of twenty and all the scores (from both the UK and the Australia judges) aggregated to determine the winning club.

Since the competition started in 2009 LBPC has won four times, Camberwell has won three times and there has been one dead heat.

The experts tell us that we are living in the digital age. An age where parameters such as speed, precision, ease of doing and efficiency will lead us to better and more productive lives. Some industries and activities are affected more than others and photography is high on the list. Changes to cameras, computers and available computer software packages have been profound and the whole photographic scene has evolved into a new art form. It is against this background that Ruth Goldwasser of Camberwell (Australia) Camera Club set off to a Royal Photographic Society Audio Visual Conference in the UK in 2008, where she made friends with Dave Gillow of Leighton Buzzard (UK) Photographic Club. From this chance encounter a new type of activity has evolved -International Club competitions.

The Two Hemisphere Challenge is a still photography contest between the two clubs using digital techniques. The contest is held annually and is based on the quality of work as assessed by two photographic judges, one from each country, as judged from 2×30 images. Each year the challenge is hotly contested and has matured to the extent that this year, Dave Gillow’s son, Martin has designed and produced a Virtual Trophy as a record of success. Modern technology has brought photographers from across the world together in a friendly competition which will see an improvement in the quality of the photography produced from our two clubs.

The competition is an “open” competition and the 60 entries this year covered – as usual – a wide range of subjects, approaches and styles.  The UK judge was Chris Forster DPAGB EFIAP FBPE, an experienced photographer and CACC (Chilterns Association of Camera Clubs) judge.

When all the judging has been completed the result, together with all the scores and the comments of the two judges, will be published on the Two Hemispheres website at www.two-hemispheres.com.

Success for the winning club is marked by the award of a Virtual Trophy, also to be found on the Two Hemispheres website.  That Virtual Trophy is currently held by LBPC.
