A bit of an unusual night for us, running a competion via Zoom, but it was nice to finally get together albeit virtually. The first competition of the 2020-2021 club year, and the theme was "Open". There were 62 digital images to be judged, and obviously due to being virtual, there were no printed images. The club welcomed back Keith Barber FIScT LRPS CPAGB, President of Swinton & District Photographic Society to judge the images remotely. As ever, points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition.
The winners and placings were as follows:-
