2017 Bi-Monthly Round 3 Competition Results May 8th 2017

SYPC have a schedule of 6 bi-monthly competitions, where members can optionally submit 2 prints and/or 2 digital images. All the bi-monthly competitions provide an excellent opportunity for members to hear an experienced judge assess their prowess, both technically and artistically. All our members are welcome, to participate in the competitions as it is an excellent way of showing their work to others, and of getting constructive feedback from a competent judge.

Michael Krier (ARPS, MA (Photography)) was the external judge for our 2017 Bi Monthly Round 3 Competition. Michael  was asked to critique and judge 28 Prints and 52 Digital Images. As part of his critique he chose his  favorite image, from each pair of images submitted by each author, and explained why he preferred that image. The chosen image then went through to Round 2 where Michael then chose his Top 8 Digital and Top 8 Prints announcing the results in reverse order.

Michael’s enthusiasm for photography and his constructive comments against all our images was well received. We all look forward to seeing Michael later this year when he returns to SYPC wih “an evening with Michael Krier”.
