South Devon League Digital & Print Battle
Season 2018 to 2019
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.
Dawlish and Teignmouth hosted the Print Competition on Wednesday 28 November 2018 and John Baker from Exeter judged the event. The results were: Exmouth 236, Dawlish & Teignmouth 234, Newton Abbot 232 and Crediton 223.
Crediton hosted the Digital competition on Friday 22 February 2019 and the judge was John Keeley. Exmouth scored 480 points; Newton Abbot 477 points; Dawlish & Teignmouth 475 points; Crediton 452 points.
It was touch and go but Ian Bateman with 1st and Andy Lock with 2nd gave us the 3 point lead we needed. John Kelley was the judge who did a great job. We are now the proud holders of the cup for a year having wrested it away from Newton Abbot who won last year.
