Edmonton win – again!

In a very close competition, against six other clubs, Edmonton CC were once again victorious in the Eight Way Print Competition. It is interesting to note that Edmonton have now won twice in the last three times that the battle has taken place.

The hosts on this occasion were Muswell Hill PS and the judge was Naomi Saul ARPS DPAGB EFIAP.

Unfortunately, due to the Hertford CC being unable to field an entry, the number of participating clubs was reduced to seven. The usual format is that each club submits five prints, along with a ‘tie-breaker’ print. It was decided this year, to increase the number of prints shown on the night, all six prints would be judged.

A very wide range of prints were shown, representing virtually every genre of photography. Naomi commented that the prints were all very high quality, making her task considerably more difficult. In her usual style Naomi drew attention to the things she liked and where, in her view, images could be enhanced with careful post-processing. Several prints were held back for final adjudication.

At the end of the night the scores were as follows:
Edmonton 108
Muswell Hill 107
Hoddesdon 105
Southgate 105
Walthamstow 105
Barnet & Finchley 104
Enfield 102

Edmonton were represented with prints from Andrew, Tony, Marilyn, Marion, and Malcolm. Marilyn’s image ‘100 Years Old Hands’ scored a maximum 20 points, securing the win for Edmonton with the final print.
