The 9th Annual Diamond Jubilee was held at Ditton Community Centre and was very well attended.

Judge Ken Scott ARPS was looking for the emotive angle of each of the images i.e. what was the image telling him, did he connect with it…

Our Club came 26th with a score of 120.  The images that were submitted are listed below together with their scores.

19/02/2019 – Malling Battle of the Prints

It was a great evening last night battling against 12 other Clubs at Malling PS, with judge Chris Shore at the helm.

Our Club came in joint 10th with Gravesend Camera Club.

The points in the middle of the table were tight though with only 4 points between us and the 4th placed Club.

Faversham and District Camera Club won the evening, which should make our battle with them next week interesting.

As a reminder there is no Club meeting this week and the KCPA Diamond Jubilee is being held on Saturday in Ditton between 2:00pm and 5:30pm.

Full results have been sent via email to members and will be posted to the members only area of the website in due course.
