The 2014 South Tyne Print competition was hosted by Winlaton CC - we invited Dave Phillips to make his judgement on the entry which camera from 6 of the 7 that make up the STA.
CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR . . . As host club Winlaton CC finished joint second in a very closely contested South Tyne Area Print Competition with Hexham PS running out the winners. The contest for best print was also a close close run thing with Judge Dave Phillips awarding four prints with 29 - two of which went to WCC - 'Archie' by Joe Laws & 'Watchful Eyes' by Jim Wicks - and two prints receiving the top mark of 30 - 'On the Edge' and 'Hare Spray' - with Alan Fowler of Gateshead CC taking it with 'One the Edge' - well done to Alan and of course Hexham PS.
Our Judge for the evening Dave Phillips provided some forthright comments and a good dash of humor - a big thank you to him in making the evening so enjoyable.
A huge thanks should go to those who turned up to set the stage as it were, for organising the competition structure and delivering the prints to the Judge in Hartlepool - no names we all know who did what.
And of course ALL the WCC members who turned up to support our club in person and making yet another excellent buffet - which was very well received by our guest's.
We should also thank of course all the members form the participating clubs for coming along as they do contribute a lot on the night - Cheers folks!
So here's to next years competition where hopefully we can jump a spot to first!
Once again thanks everyone . . . Here's the result including the winning image and all 8 of our entry.
