Competition Final Round

We had a good quality entry for the final round of our competition which was an open subject but the number of entries was slightly reduced.
Thanks go to our judges Louise Brown and Gordon Brown who provided positive feedback and advice on all the images.
The beginners section was won by Mike Hickish with Pat Brown second, Ali Meadows third. Mia Green and Maggie Hickish scored a highly commended each.
The advanced section was won by Steve Green with Alistair Hood second, Dawn Blight third and Jeff Johnson and Tony Weaver both scored a highly commended.
This being the final round of the competition series the final league placings have been decided.
In the beginners league both David Melsome and Mia Green finished with 12 points each so the final result had to be decided on count back. Both had one first place but Mia had a second whilst the next highest placing for David was a third. This could not have been closer but Mia has been declared the winner. Third place goes to Maggie Hickish which is a remarkable feat given that she missed the first round of the series.
First place in the advanced league went to Steve Green with Alistair Hood a close second and a dead heat for third between Gareth Morgan and Sylvia Larter Whitcher. Even on count back these two members were tied and therefore share third place.
Congratulations to everyone who has taken part to make this aspect of our year a success which we can now build on.

The winning images will appear in the Gallery once the digital versions have been supplied to Matthew White.
