Colchester 8x8 Competition October 2023

8×8 Print Competition hosted by Colchester Photographic Society

 

On Tuesday 17th October, Great Notley Photography Club entered the 8 x 8 Inter-Club Competition hosted by Colchester Photographic Society for the first time in many years. The competition is so called because eight clubs are invited to compete each offering 8 prints by 8 different club members.

The event was very well attended and hugely enjoyable. As we have quite a few new members, we were very pleased with our position and individual scores (even though GNPC were not in the top half of the table). It was very interesting to see all the entries from other clubs and gave inspiration and ideas for the future.

The standard was very high overall and Mike Fuller, the judge, did a great job in his appraisal. The evening had an exciting end with a tie between Ipswich and Colchester. Each of these two clubs offered one more image for the tie-breaker with a single decisive point being requested for what he believed to be the best image. On this occasion it went to Colchester PS, who were therefore declared this season’s winners.5 of the entries from GNPC are shown here (the other 3 entered are only in print form).

The individual scores for the GNPC entries were:

Trevor Partridge’s ‘Kingfisher’ – 17/20
Tom Lewington’s ‘Gallery’ – 17/20
David Beardwell’s ‘Lion’ – 16/20
Jill Griffiths’ ‘Devon Sunrise’ – 16/20
Rod Nixon’s ‘Wine’ – 16/20
John Cogswell’s ‘Impala’ – 15/20
Andrea Stanley’s ‘Silver Surfers’ – 15/20
Liz Beardwell’s ‘Bruges’ – 15/20

Thank you to Colchester Photography Society for hosting and we look forward to next year.
