Club Competition – ‘My Photography These Days’

8 May 2020 | Club Competitions

The onset of the lockdown caused by Covid-19 meant that we had to rethink our acivities and the first item done differently was our competitions. On 27th April 2020 the second formal competition for 2020, ‘My Photography These Days’, was judged by Dermot Byrne.

Changes to the format were that we had a theme that applied to all the levels and then had an Open section that anyone no mater what level could enter with no theme to the entry, the entries were digital and the judging was done remotely. David Sisk and the judge Dermot Byrne then did a virtual meeting to discuss the image and announce the winners which was captured and made available to the members to watch as a video online.

Congratulations to all who took part and thanks to Dermot for the informative video.
