On the 7th July the WPF held an inaugural print competition to choose the two clubs who would represent the WPF in the National finals at Connaughs Quay in October, this choice would normally be made from the Salon entry, which we won this year but the WPF chose to create this new event for the selection process.
As I was on holiday Graham and Jay attended and made the necessary selections for the second round after the selection committee had chosen the 1st round entry prior to the competition. The club entry had to be 12 prints for round 1 consisting of at least 5 B&W (Monochrome) and 5 colour with no more than 3 Natural History. In round 2 it was 15 prints with the same criteria although images from round 1 could be used again dependant on there 1st round score.
After round 1 we were in =7th position from the 11 clubs that took part, after the final round 2 we ended up in =5th place, with Inn Focus on top and Tenby second. Both these clubs go forward to represent the WPF in October.
