Open Print Competition Results

By Competitions, News No Comments

Many thanks to our panel of judges, David Tolliday, Andrew Wilson and Chris Aggersbury, for doing such a professional job last night.  The top 10 are as follows: In equal first place with 10 points each are Anthony Gosling, Pamela Carr and Len Claydon.  Other scorers are: Anthony again with 7 points, Steve Gresty with 2 images gaining 6 points and one in tenth place, Kevin Blake scores 4, Kevin Lomax 3 and Len Claydon with another 2 points.

With 47 entries there was a strong field, with many people entering prints for the first time. Hopefully, this will mean that we can re-introduce more prints to the internal competitions next season. Thanks to all who took the trouble to enter.

The leader board is now as follows:

Anthony Gosling 28; Steve Gresty 26; Kevin Blake 19; Conor Molloy 16; Paul Scott 15; David Tolliday 13; Louise Acton and  Len Claydon on 12;  and Pamela Carr 10; Kevin Lomax 7; Vince Spaks 6;  Malcolm Brunt 4 and Irene Lea 1.
