PACC Photograph of the Year Results

In our final competition for the year, 159 entries were judged by our 3 judges - Susie Lipert, Helen Whitford & Chris Carter. All 3 judges mentioned that they thought our images were of a very high standard, and there were quite a few discussions when determining the merits.

The judges gave some excellent commentary on the top images selected.

POTY Winners, Runners-up & Merits are showcased below.

Congratulations to all of our club members on providing such a great year of competition.

If you have ever wondered what happens on a judging night, here is a photograph, taken by one of our committee members, Georgios Tsiminis


As the PACC Calendar draws to a close, we have our AGM on 20th November 2018 and then we can look forward to a bit of celebration at our Trophy Presentation Night on 4th December.

Club outings will still continue through December and January - members are reminded to keep a look out on In Focus for some exciting bits of news and information.

Please feel free to visit our Facebook Page Photo albums to see more images that have gained Merits during the year, and if you like, please leave a comment .... I am sure the author would love to hear from you!

I would like to say a huge Thank You to our Competition Secretary & President, Colin J Pearce, for running the competitions each month, and getting the results out to members & placing the winning images on Facebook throughout the year. A big thank you to Joylene Lee-Archer as well for organising the judges throughout the year.

Thanks also go to all the other committee members for their tireless assistance on competition nights - without them, the night would not go as smoothly as it does.

And lastly, thank you to our members for entering our monthly competitions.
Looking forward to seeing what next year brings!

Cheers, Cathy Cates
PACC Secretary (2014-2018)
