Three of our members made it to the Karori Arts and Craft Centre on a cold winter’s evening (17 August, just after the big snow) to represent KCPS at the annual Wellington Interclub Print Battle. What we lacked in numbers we made up for in enthusiasm. Our Society was doing great after the first six of ten categories, with a clear lead in first place. Unfortunately, after that we faded, and finished up in fourth place out of six clubs.

Wellington Photographic Society won, with a total of 27 points (low is good). The next few places were very close. Kapiti Camera Club and the Karori Camera Club tied for second place with 33 points. We were just one behind with 34 points, followed by Hutt Camera Club on 36 points. This was the first year that Aotearoa Philippines Photographic Society joined us. They only competed in four of the categories (doing very well in those) and ended up with 48 points.

Thanks to Karori Camera Club for hosting the event, and to Bruce Girdwood who was an excellent and thoughtful judge as always.

Finally, here are the two images that did best for us.
