The South Devon League Battles are between Dawlish & Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Crediton and ourselves. We have two battles a season, the Print Battle in either November or December and the Digital Battle sometime in the spring. Each club enters 15 prints and 15 digital images for each of the competitions. We are not allowed more than 2 images from the same photographer.
The Print Meeting was held on Friday 11 November at Crediton and the Judge was John Kelly from Bideford who gave very thought provoking and sometime hilarious comments to the images. Newton Abbot came first with 249 points, Dawlish and Teignmouth was second with 245 points, Exmouth 3rd with 242 points and Crediton had 233 points.
It was a good evening with some fantastic images, the standard is going up all the time. Exmouth needs to make a real effort for their digital entry to gain those few extra points to still retain the cup as the scores were very close. Each image is scored out of 20 with a maximum mark of 17 so that the final three can get 18, 19 and 20. Exmouth fortunately got 2nd place with Sheila's Misty Morning.
The Digital battle took place on Wednesday 8th March at Dawlish with Alan Davey as the judge. Exmouth unfortunately missed out on only having one of the top placings which caused us to come 2nd in the League. John Perriam had 18 points for his Up and Away which came 3rd.
