MMcN presented the attached checklist to assist and encourage us to up our game when submitting entries to the club (and other) competitions. The checklist, prepared by MMcN and RT, is applicable to both print and dpi entries.
This post is intended to draw your attention to the checklist, especially those members unable to attend the Members Evening session on 20 February 2019. A copy will also be placed on the “Competitions” tab for future reference and download.
It is perhaps worth reiterating here that the competition rules are available on the website and that your Council has agreed that the number of entries may be restricted where a large volume of entries has occurred. Compliance with the subject matter guidelines is strongly encouraged and the judges will be advised to take our subject guidelines into account when judging. Please also help our Competitions Secretary when preparing your digital entries on CD or Memory sticks and Flash drives by placing your images inside a folder bearing your name (and awards where appropriate, e.g. ARPS, DPAGB). Please remember to check image size and colour space compliance to avoid unintended consequences when the competition software automatically changes these attributes.Final Check List

Well done to everyone who managed to get to the annual photo competition between the Wallasey Amateur Photographic Society (WAPS) and the Birkenhead Photographic Association (BPA). A highlight of the year, with friendly rivalry between both clubs, was made particularly challenging this year due to the chaotic travelling conditions caused by adverse weather conditions. The judge was snowed in and unable to attend. Despite this and some members failing to make it to the venue, the competition went ahead.
At half time the WAPS had the lead by 4 points. Was this to be the year they won back the trophy? Alas it was not to be and for the fifth consecutive year the BPA retained the trophy. Well done to the BPA team, led by Dave Jones. Yet again the scores were close, with the BPA scoring 71 points to the WAPS score of 67. Ian Pickavance won a bottle of wine for the best photo in the competition. Well done Ian. The photo shows the BPA President, Ron Thomas accepting the trophy, with Ian’s winning entry showing on the screen behind.
