Throughout the year 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.
Hilary Britland was the external judge for the 6th. of our 6 Bi-Monthly Competitions. It was obvious that Hilary had put a lot of work into reviewing and preparing for the evening – this resulted in an excellent narrative describing the best bits of the image and offering constructive feedback for improvement, all of which was much appreciated by our membership. Hilary critiqued and constructively commented on 78 images (28 prints and 48 digital images). Hilary opened the meeting by explaining to the membership how much she had enjoyed reviewing all our work and that we had some excellent images submitted, many of which could do well in External Competitions.
