On Monday night we held the 6th. and final Bi-Monthly Competition of the calendar year. All our members are encouraged to submit entries to our Bi-Monthly Competitions as we gain valuable constructive critique from the experienced judges we invite to judge these competitions. Normally our Bi-Monthly competitions have 2 categories, Prints and Projected Digital Images and our members can submit 2 pictures in each category. Unfortunately during this time of continued Video Conferencing and the difficulty of safely handling Prints, when we aren’t meeting Face to Face, our Bi-Monthly Competitions are only Projected Digital Images.
For the 6th. Bi-Monthly competition there was no theme as it was an “Open Competition”. Peter Weaver (APAGB, CPAGB and LRPS) was our judge. Peter has been to SYPC on numerous occasions (at least 13) as a speaker and a judge so he he is well known and respected by us all. He always gives a fair, honest and deep critique of each image and Monday night was no exception.
Peter commented and constructively critiqued 42 digital images from 21 SYPC members.
Thank You Peter we look forward to seeing you in person at SYPC next year with your talk “Event Photography”.

At the moment SYPC hasn’t returned to Face to Face meetings. We continue to use Zoom for all our club meetings. However we monitor the situation regularly and hope to return to Face to Face meetings in the near future.
