It was a tough competition last night – with 60 fabulous images.

We didn’t win, but were in good company.  Four out of six of the clubs, including KCPS, ended up on the higher end (low is good) with a total of 37 or 38 points.  The results table was:

Congratulations to WPS who won the competition, and Aotearoa Philippines Photographic Society who came in second.

The judge, Jordyn O’Keefe, did a great job on speedily assessing and providing useful comments on every image.

We did manage to score top marks (1) in two categories – “Animals”, where it turned out she was a big fan of cows, and “Abstract”, with Hugh Scott’s image “From a Fantasy Forest“. Here’s Jordyn reviewing the abstract entries, with Hugh’s at bottom left:

Special congratulations to Hugh. With the top abstract image, he was the winner of the “Stella Daniell Award”, in honour of the late Stella Daniell, and will retain a framed image of hers until next year’s competition – when it’s our turn again to host it up here on the Kapiti Coast.
