Results – Members’ Choice Competition

The competition is intended to give all non-advanced members an opportunity to have their work assessed in an informal setting, and to enable society members to recognise the merit of this work. The competition is open to all non-advanced members of the society and entries from new members are particularly welcome. Each member may enter up to two prints and two projected images, i.e. up to four images in total. Images must not have won any award or certificate in any previous society competition or the Annual Exhibition. Images that have not previously been entered in a competition are welcome.

Images are critiqued by a member of WPS who is an SPA judge, and members attending the competition cast a vote for their favourite PDI and print image.
