Oh dear it has happened again, our judge didn't turn up, but he did give a few hours notice and the ever hard working Stuart Chapman stepped in to read out David Clapp's comments, not an easy job, so well done Stuart. Well done to all the winners. As usual there were some great pictures. For anyone who is interested in the DPIC event held in the Corn Exchange in Exeter last Sunday the results can be viewed at http://www.wcpf.org.uk/pages/dpic-2020.php.  Over 50 clubs entered and Paignton came 36th, much the same as last year. Well done Tony Matthews for scoring 13 points on three photos. The maximum that can be scored is 15. On Monday we have "Shots in the Dark" with Adrian Harris and Miranda Woods (hopefully). See you all on Monday. Angie Cottis

Chairman's Challenge Results 2020

We are pleased to announce the results of this years Chairman's Challenge. We all had a great night choosing our favourite mages which despite the title of A Closer Look was not overpowered by macro images, far from it, a good majority of the images indeed required the viewer to take a closer look. Congratulations to Darran Thompson for taking 1st Place and to Willie Wilson in 2nd, Mike Hales in 3rd and Mike Bond in 4th for some equally creditable entries. You can see all of the placed entries by visiting the competitions gallery.

Newsletter 3 February

What a great evening we had on Monday with David Snowden. It was good to see something a bit different, enjoyed it immensely, hope you all did too.  The combination of photos and videos was great.

On Monday we have David Clapp judging our 'Dusk to Dawn' competition.  Also, don't forget it is the last day for entering our Open Competition, which is a print competition.  So don't forget to bring your prints along and also send a copy to our Photo Entry site.

As you can see I have attached a copy of E-news.  It is sent to me regularly, so I thought I would send it on.  Hope you find it interesting. See you all on Monday
