David Snowden (judge) with Tony Wilson, Steve Capewell, Jon Pitt, Bob Kethro, Denise Searle, Edward Chorlton, Ken Redshaw, and Ken Holland
As usual there were a good selection of prints on various subjects, black and white, colour and some very small images effectively framed in large mounts which looked very impressive.
A high standard was set with the standard workers prints shown first, followed after the break by advanced members work.
The judge was David Snowden from Exeter, a freelance photographer and organic farmer, who gave an excellent critique of every picture, taking time to make positive remarks and a detailed appraisal of each print, also giving advice if needed. He showed great enthusiasm and appreciation of every print.
Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and David was thanked by Nigel West, club secretary.
