This was the second of our 6 bi-monthly member competitions for 2020. Our members are encouraged to submit 2 Prints and 2 Digital images in an open format, for the SYPC, Bi-Monthly competitions. Our judge for this Monthly competition was Victoria Hillman.
Victoria is a wildlife researcher and photographer and part of the current judging panel for Bird Photographer Of The Year (BPOTY) and judge for British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) in 2018 & 2019. So well qualified to judge our Round 2 competition.
For our 2nd. Bi Monthly Competition Victoria reviewed and commented on 80 images (44 digitals and 36 prints). However due to the current travel restrictions and the need for ‘social distancing’ Victoria was unable to deliver the results of her findings in person. However she supplied sufficient information that we were able to share her deliberations and results to our club members.
Thank you Victoria and we look forward to meeting you in person in 2021.
