Brian Lynch Challenge - This took place at Portland on Wed 12th Feb and was the second annual inter-club competition against Weymouth CC. It was judged by Janet Haines ARPS, AFIAP, DPAGB who did a very good and fair job and gave constructive criticism where appropriate. Weymouth won the overall competition by 298 points to 285½ to avenge their defeat by us last year. However, our members took first place and one of the highly commended placings.
IoPHT Photo Comp - The 29th annual Isle of Portland Heritage Trust Photography Competition took place during October 2013 with our club well-represented by 12 of us taking part. Our members picked up a total of 8 awards and won 4 of the 13 available trophies. See the "IoPHT 2013" page for a report and all the results.
Wessex Battle 2013 - This was held on Mon 28th October at 7:30pm at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester. Unfortunately we were unable to repeat last year's result of joint sixth and we came in tenth place. The judge seemed to prefer images which told a story or had some meaning to them and even well-taken landscapes or still-lifes did not score well. All the top images involved people in them and none of ours did which didn't help.
