2022 North Cheshire Challenge

Father Brown By Gordon Watson

The North Cheshire Challenge is organised by the North Cheshire Photographic Society and usually consists of two competitions held over a weekend – an interclub print competition and an interclub Digital Knock-out competition. The latter took place on Friday night on Zoom, judged by Terry Donnelly.

In a knock-out competition, about half the images are removed in each round until at round 5 only a few remain and the judge chooses their overall winner. Points are then awarded for the round which an image reaches – 1pt for the first round, 2 pts for the second etc.

Those of us that Zoomed in were treated to a really high standard of images from the 21 Clubs taking part. Terry did a great job judging the competition and provided some excellent and detailed critique. LSAPS finished in a very commendable 5th place with a score of 14pts – congratulations to Kuli Virdee and Gordon Watson whose images reached the 4th round. Southport PS and Wigan 10 shared the top spot on 18pts and Trevor Davenport of Southport had the top image of the night.

Unfortunately there were insufficient entries from the clubs to run the print competition.
