The judge was Brian Galbraith who did an excellent job of discussing the images and awarding the appropriate points. I am delighted to say that it was two of our members who got the awards for the best Print and Digital images for the event. Ian Bateman was awarded best print for his No Cycling and Derrick Holliday was awarded best Digital Image for his Taxi image.
