Last Saturday was the last of the 2013 external competitions entered by LPS. There were a total of 27 clubs entered again from across the WPF area. It was judged over 4 rounds (prints) by Martin Fry from Cheltenham. After the first two rounds we were =3rd, after 3 rounds we were =2nd and at the end came away with a very credible =3rd position behind Gwynfa and Inn Focus Group.
Our entry consisted of 4 prints, ‘Holy Island’ by Clive Martin 18pts, ‘Paper Chase’ by Jennifer Williams 16pts, ‘A Drink from Grandma’ by Joyce Mollet 17pts and ‘The Bird Cage’ by Steve Milton 16pts. These scores may seem a little low but the overall judging was very fair and went from as low as 11pts to the max of 20pts, although there were only two 20pts scored in the whole competition.
Tredegar walked away with the best B&W, Swansea with best Colour, Bridgened with best Landscape and Inn Focus with best image overall. There were trophies for all these categories.
The winning club for the actual ‘Stanley Chell Trophy’ was Gwynfa 69pts, second was Inn Focus with 68pts and Llanelli/Towey Valley =3rd with 67pts. So again we came in the top three of 27 clubs
Well done to all those who were selected
