2023 L&CPU Knock-Out Competition

The Debutante by Gordon Watson

The annual L&CPU Knock-Out competition was held on 18th November at the Elmbank Conference Centre in Eccles, judged by Simon Allen MPAGB, APAGB, EFIAP from the Scottish Federation. Each club entered 8 images, however as 40 clubs took part, the number of images entered into the judging was reduced to just 4 images per club, giving 160 images to be judged on the night. Images were knocked out in a series of rounds, until just 5 images were left, at which point the judge chose his overall winner. Club scores are based on the round at which an image was eliminated.

The overall competition was won by Wigan 10 with a score of 20pts, however LSAPS placed a very creditable 3rd equal on 18pts. The winning image was by Brianna Gilligan, who at just 14years of age was probably the youngest entrant.

Congratulations to Gordon Watson, who’s Debutante made it through to the final round. LSAPS results and images are shown below, whilst a gallery of all images reaching at least the second round is available on the L&CPU portal (note you must be registered on the portal and logged in):-
