Tri-city (2021)

The Tri-city competition with South London Photographic Society & Bon Accord Camera Club (Aberdeen) is a relatively new competition for the club but it is establishing itself as a way to enjoy the photography from across the UK. This year was a little different from previous events as it was held in realtime with members from all the clubs attending – thanks to the ubiquity of video conferencing services these days. Thanks to South London for organising & hosting this year.

We had a fun evening with plenty of chat and a great display of photography. Our judge for the evening was Clive Tanner MPAGB, FRPS, APAGB who provided thoughtful comment on all the photographs. Bon Accord ran out comfortable winners with an impressive display of quality photography – all four of the commendations were awarded to Bon Accord photographs. This left Cardiff and South London in a tight tussle with only a half point difference in the final reckoning. Unfortunately we were placed in 3rd place behind South London. The Final scores were:

Bon Accord138.5

Despite the third position overall a number of our photographs were well liked by the judge and scored very highly just missing out on maximum marks – well done Trevor Waller, Dave Russell & Andre Van de Sande. The full Cardiff scoresheet is shown below:
