KCPS had the pleasure of hosting the annual Wellington Interclub Print Battle at KCPS last evening. The Otaihanga Boating Club was full to the brim to see Tony Bridge do an excellent job of judging one print from each of the six clubs, for each of ten categories.

Congratulations to Karori Camera Club, who were the clear winners on the night, against tough competition. The final score sheet is shown below. A score of 1 for an image means it was the top rated, 2 for the second rated, etc. So the lowest total wins – Karori Camera Club getting 23. We were very happy to come second, thanks to a sprint finish with the top rating for the KCPS “Terraced” image. WPS seemed to get stuck on 4!

Tony also chose the best abstract print of the night, in honour of the late Stella Daniell. The print was by Ian Walker from the Hutt Camera Club. Trophy and Award presentations are shown below.

Many thanks to Tony Bridge for doing a terrific job under demanding (by some) circumstances. We had a great turnout, and it was a fun night for all, capped off by socialising over a yummy supper provided by our members.
